The festival was back with a bang and for the second time, as Bandra came together in a unique celebration of culture, colour, vibrancy and entertainment. With a scenic Portuguese fort at Bandstand as the backdrop, the opening ceremony kicked off amidst much fanfare and a spectacular display of fireworks.

Eminent personalities from the fields of art, craft, film, music and theatre took Bandraites on a whirlwind tour through the intricacies of all the crafts. The festival provided a platform of sharing and appreciation of the multi-cultural fabric of Bandra.
