Sikkim Summer Carnival is a five day long event with an array of flower shows, cultural programmes, exhibitions and interesting competitions. The main event will be held at the White Hall in Gangtok.Every section of the Sikkim community is encouraged to take part in the celebrations and entertain the visitors. The aim of the festival authorities is to give tourists a feel of the Sikkim that existed three decades ago. It was during this time that community song & dance routines were introduced by the field workers of Sikkim who had no other source of entertainment. So this is perhaps the most culturally rich festival of Sikkim. A local food festival, white water rafting and an offbeat ” Yak Safari ” are also part of the Sikkim Summer Carnival.
