Camel Festival Ground is home to the biggest event of the town of Pushkar, the internationally acclaimed Pushkar Camel Fair. During the off-season, this ground is a deserted patch of arid land with no sign life. However it takes on a new lease of life with the onset of the Camel Fair, held between October and November. Locals across various parts of Rajasthan converge at these fairgrounds to trade their camels. This makes for a colorful spectacle brimming with traders and buyers at several tents selling camels, traditional art and crafts, and various local products. Spectators too are treated to a slice of life of the magical desert state of Rajasthan.
