Vaisakhi Celebrations

Vaisakhi is a spring festival that happens on the 13th or 14th of April every year. It is a day to celebrate 1699 - the year when Sikhism was born as a collective faith. Vaisakhi started as a harvest festival in the Punjab region of northern India.


On Vaisakhi, Sikhs go to the Gurdwara in the morning for a service. Afterwards, they have a procession through the streets with lots of singing, chanting and colourful clothes. The procession is called the Nagar Kirtan. In the evening, Sikhs have a special meal with family and friends.
