So Delhi

#WhereToWeekend: Chill @ Riders Music Fest, Krackerjack Karnival Or Gorge At Vada Pav Fest!

Just when you thought that the food festivals are over and done with, here comes the Vada Pav Festival and Kids Culinaire! Along with that, there’s the much-awaited Urdu festival called Jashn-e-Rekhta also happening and a few more musical events are accompanying it! Scroll away for the dope.

Vada Pav Fest (17th - 26th February)

The Masala Trail By Osama Jalali is organising a crazy Vada Pav festival where you’ll get to try 6 different types of vada pavs all the way from Mumbai! You’ll see the famous Chowpatty Se Vada Pav, Rajasthani Bullet, Bengali Babu, Punjabi Tadka, Chennai Express, and Chocolate Pataka - flavours that Delhiites have never seen (or eaten) before. The most amazing bit about the festival is that the Vada Pavs start at the meager price of Rs 20 and go up to max 60 bucks. Woah, that sounds awesome!
