Organized by the State Tourism and Art & Culture Departments, the Hornbill Festival Showcases a Melange of Cultural Displays Under One Roof.
Hornbill Festival is one of the biggest music festivals in Nagaland, which is known as the Festival of Festivals. It is a seven-day cultural fest that takes place amid the scenic vistas of Kohima in December every year.
The festival is an initiative of the state government of Nagaland to display the talent of the diverse multi-ethnic tribes of Nagaland to the world. It is a platform for upcoming Northeast bands and artists to meet musicians coming from different parts of the country.
This year, Hornbill Festival 2021 will take place from 1st to 10th December at the Naga Heritage Village in Kisama, located around 12 kilometers from the capital of Nagaland, Kohima. The celebration begins at 9 am every day.
Various art forms, folk songs, dances, games, handicrafts, handloom, multi-cuisines, and different local food stalls are the major attraction of the festival. But the most attractive event at the festival is Naga chilly eating competition.
It's a must-see festival for all tourists visiting Nagaland in the month of December.
