When is Uttarayan in 2016 ?

Uttarayan 2016 is on 14th January 2016 – Thursday

What is Uttarayan Festival ?

The festival of Uttarayan is a uniquely Gujarati phenomenon, when the skies over most cities of the state fill with kites from before dawn until well after dark. Makar Sankranti Festival 2016 marks the days in the Hindu calendar when winter begins turning to summer, known as Makar Sankranti or Uttarayan Festival in Gujarat

In Gujarat state, to celebrate Uttarayan Festival 2016, almost all normal activity is shut down and everyone takes to the rooftops and roadways to fly kites and compete with their neighbors.

Kite which is also known as “Patang“ in typical Gujarati Language, like “ Firki “ and “ Patang - Dora “.  Again “Firki“ Brands like “Bhagwan Patang Bandar, Manza, Panda, Vardhman” are very Famous in Gujarat. 

This time “Uttarayan 2016” is on Wednesday, so in all major cities of Gujarat like Ahmedabad, Surat, Baroda, Rajkot, Gandhinagar, Jamnagar, Bhavnagar, Bhuj, Gandhidham etc will enjoy this “Kite Flying Festival 2016”.


Production of kites and kite supplies on Makar Sankranti Festival Gujarat can be seen on the streets of Gujarat beginning in November, to get ready for Uttarayan Festival, and nowhere more so than in Patang Bazaar, the special kite market that appears in the old city. For the week preceding the festival, it is open 24 hours a day for all kite lovers to stock up for the festivities.

Parents who normally find their children hard to get out of bed for school will find them setting the alarm for 5 am on 14th January 2016, to get up and start flying kites in the ideal pre-dawn wind. The atmosphere is wonderfully festive, as whole families gather on the rooftop, special Uttarayan Festival Foods like Laddoos, Undhyu or Surati Jamun are prepared for eating over the course of the day, and friends and neighbors visit each other for group kite-flying fun.
