Madur Utsav, Sarta, Sabang, Dec 9- 11, 2016.

The first mela exclusively focusing on the Madur craft was held at Sarta, Sabang, Paschim Medinipur which is the home to generations of fine Madur weavers. It was widely attended by dignitaries, designers, visitors as well as locals and thus making it a matter of great pride for the weavers. Enthralling performances of Baul, Raibenshe, Lok Geet and Chau were of great interest to the locals. Unexpectedly, the Madur artisans managed to sell quite a sum of products as the people were overwhelmed to see such a wide variety of products on display.
