The 6th Annual Chikoo Festival at the S. R. Save Camping Grounds, Bordi Beach, Dahanu in Maharashtra was a two-day event held from January 27-28. 

The festival initiated by MTDC in 2013 in order to promote tourism in the area has received support from the State Agricultural Department and other local organisations along with local people and the social activists who actively involve in making the festival a reminiscent success. On the sidelines of showcasing the richness and vitality of Chikoo fruit, the festival also focused on discerning the local cultural atmosphere, under one roof. 

To begin with, the Chikoo Safari which involved visits to chikoo and flower farms painted a beautiful picture of the local agricultural landscape while the Chikoo Winery Tour, dubbed as the first of its kind, allowed the visitors to explore the wine processing of chikoo. The event’s vicinity witnessed stress-relieving activities such as Warli village experience, playing beach kabbadi and ghodiya cricket.

The Event space comprised of an Entertainment Area, Main Stage Area and two other designated areas to exclusively conduct workshops. The Sand Castle workshops, workshops on old games, Warli Painting, Pottery, Cane, Date Leaves and Rangoli workshops were devoted time religiously over the two days. Each workshop focussed on teaching the participants a new and unique skill. There was also a ‘Cook with Chikoo workshop’ hosted by Nirmal Save that served as a highlight, infusing cuisine and regional practices.

Being close to cities like Mumbai, Surat and Nasik well connected through Railways, Airway and road the festival saw a diverse crowd.
