Also Called As :
The Unique Tribal Fair
Dangs Darbar is the name of the yearly fair held every year in Ahwa, the most important town in the Dangs a few days before Holi. The Dangs is one of the mainly delightful districts of Gujarat and is situated high in the Saputara hills, the original home of the 'adivasis', the tribal population of Gujarat.
The name 'Darbar' dates back to the time of the British, when a darbar of Rajas and Naiks of neighbouring area used to assemble there. Today, it is called Jamabandi Darbar and the District Collector officiates at it.
Thousands of tribal people flock to Ahwa from all over the district, dressed in bright colours sounding the Shehnai and beating their drums. Folk dances, dramas and songs make livelier the air during the festival.
