Kala Ghoda festival is an exhibition of a world of arts that encapsulates works of artistes in the fields of music, dance, theater, film and all the genres of art that make for the vibrantly rich culture of Mumbai.

Held on every Sunday from November to January, the venues for the activities are the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), the David Sassoon Library Garden, the Jehangir Art Gallery, among others within the area. Kala Ghoda fesival is run by the Kala Ghoda Association, established in 1988 with an objective to improve the existing infrastructure of the area, and giving it a distinct identity as Mumbai's art district. Today Kala Ghoda fair has become no less than a catalyst for the revival of art across Mumbai.

During the Kala Ghoda festival, the whole of the area around Jehagir Art Gallery turns into a plaza on the streets. It's a rare experience when you can walk past aesthetically designed kiosks, and savor the artistes' works created right before your eyes. You can breathe the earthly smell coming out from the master potter's art turning alive. It's the best time when the sights, sounds, rhythm, beat and love of rural India take centre-stage.

The atmosphere is electric with creativity. Every lane seems to speak of subtle essence of art. You may browse through books and choose your kind of music. You can even have parrots narrating your future if you care to listen and shell out some penny.

And after all this hectic and engaging fun you will love to treat yourself to the varied cuisine that Maharashtra offers. Relish a traditional Parsi breakfast or walk into the famous Max Mueller Bhavan and feast one's senses on a collection of award winning Indian films. With the Sun sliding down the Arabian Sea and fresh gust of cool breeze, you can go for a potpourri of folk dancers, musicians and singers.
