Five festivals Of Delhi that you must-attend in 2019-20
If one were to re-write the alphabet song to have it correspond with the things that represent the spirit of Delhi, one would be hard-pressed to choose what F will stand for: Food, Film, or Festival? For Delhi is not just the national capital, it is also the Mecca for culture and pop culture enthusiasts across the country. Here, then, are five festivals where you can go with your family to spend some quality time and chill this eventful winter:
Delhi Comic Con 2019
The Comic Con conventions are some of the most anticipated get-togethers for comics, graphic novels, film, TV, gaming, and anime lovers in India. Fans from not just in and around Delhi but also from across the country make it a point to visit this mega festival to engage, explore, and experience the highly-charged atmosphere bursting with modern pop culture literature, references, exhibitions, and merchandise. The latest edition of Delhi Comic Con will take place between December 20-22 at NSIC Okhla, Okhla Phase III, New Delhi.
New Delhi World Book Fair
Book buffs of Delhi unite! Book your time slots to visit this popular books & literature gala come January. New Delhi World Book Fair is made of the stuff of a bibliophile’s dreams and every year it attracts thousands of book-lovers from across the country. Exhibiting an array of sections from fiction and classics to school textbooks and second-hand book bonanza, this fair will transform Pragati Maidan into one place in New Delhi which no bibliophile can afford to miss between January 4 and 12, 2020.
Navrasa Duende World Movie Festival
Every day is a good day to watch a movie. But when film aficionados gather in one place to celebrate the classics that continue to enrich the cinematic literature and change the lives of people the world over, it becomes a sin to miss it. To be attended by an elite gathering comprising Navrasa Duende Movie Club members, special guests, film critics, and media, Navrasa Duende World Movie Festival 2019-20 is one such event! The first leg of the film carnival is scheduled to be held on November 16-17, 2019, at Siri Fort. The line-up for the inaugural screening features acclaimed classics of the World Cinema including Apocalypse Now, Tokyo Story, The Marriage of Maria Braun, Charulata, The Passion of Joan of Arc, and Pulp Fiction.
The Lil Flea Festival

Following an enthusiastic response to the successful edition earlier this year, the festival returns to spread creative, independent, and homegrown wholesomeness at JLN Stadium on November 22 and 24, 2019. It will feature 250 of the most creative home-grown pop-up shops from across the country and make the nights come alive with experimental foods, carnival games, indie music, book exchanges, movie screenings, and a host of stunning experiences.
