Festivals in Aizawl

Chapchar Kut Festival

The Chapchar Kut Festival is one of the significant festivals in Mizoram. This vibrant and colourful festival is unique in Mizoram because it signifies the beginning of Spring season. Many locals and tourists throng to the festival to glimpse the performances and other festivities. In Aizawl, the Chapchar festival also transforms the celebrations into a huge carnival.

The spring season marks the onset of cultivation season. The farmers cut the woods and proceed towards the farms. The remaining wood is burned, and the crops are sawed during the monsoon season, so the Chapchar is also considered the harvest festival of Mizoram.

Mim Kut Festival

The Mim Kut Festival is another vital harvest festival in Mizoram. It is dedicated to the family members, loved ones and the departed souls. The significance of the Mim Kut Festival is also directly related to the importance of the Chapchar festival. The crops that were sowed during the Chapchar festival are harvested during this time.

The locals take the first produce from the harvest and offer it to the departed souls who are believed to visit the home during the festival. Apart from just the harvest, they also keep their favourite articles such as clothes, ornaments, and other objects that ring memory.
