About the event

Vaisakhi is one of the most significant annual celebrations in the Sikh religion and in India. Historically, it has always occurred in mid-April and started with the earliest crop harvest. As a religious celebration, it has consistently been a convivial observance with several festivities and communal celebrations. With time, this historic tradition began to take on other meanings and a new significance for Sikh history.

The Khalsa refers both to the community of believers in Sikhism and to a select group of devout Sikhs. With the creation of a unified Sikh state a few decades later, the Vaisakhi celebration took on another meaning for many Sikhs. As of today, Vaisakhi is not only a celebration of the new solar year but also an observance of the recognition of Sikh communities. As one of the most significant Sikh holidays, Vaisakhi festivities are numerous, including fairs, ceremonial harvest celebrations, and public performances.
