West Bengal is a land of fairs and festivals. In fact, the culture of the state is characterized by the colorful celebrations that adorn it throughout the year. Almost every district of West Bengal plays host to at least one popular fair or festival in the entire year. The celebrations not only tell the tale of their rich cultural heritage, but also improve their prospects as a tourist destination.
