Maharashtra hosts many festivals and special events. For the traveller in pursuit of the out-of-the-ordinary insight into the cultural heritage of Maharashtra, the Ellora Festival (Indian Classical Dance), the Prithvi Theatre Festival, the Sur Singar (Indian Classical Music) and the Music, Dance, and Drama Festival held in Mumbai, as well as religious festivals and fairs like the Kumbha Mela at Nasik, Id, Parsi New Year, Easter and Christmas and Hindu festivals of Holi, Diwali and Ganesh Chaturthi showcase the state’s multi cultural diversity.

The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi celebrated with cultural and religious events in Mumbai and Pune is dedicated to elephant-headed God Ganesh and culminates in processions to immerse the deity in water. The weeklong pageant is particularly worth visiting on the day of immersion at Mumbai in August/September
