The Nagaur Fair held every year during the month of Jan-Feb, is popularly known as the Cattle fair and is the second largest in Rajasthan. Nagaur town is the most picturesque of Rajput townships. Nagaur is a sea of animals, trading over 70,000 bullocks, camels and horses every year. The bullocks are known for their fleetness. Not only are the animals lavishly decorated, even their owners flaunt wearing colorful turbans and long moustaches.
Sports like tug-of-war, camel races, bullock races and cock fights;
jugglers; puppeteers, story-tellers; and exciting campfire evenings are
held to entertain the tourists. Folk music of the Jodhpur variation

cities by road and rail. Nearest airport is Jodhpur, some 135kms away.
Shearing sheep, handsome marwari horses to spices all compiled in one
fair. Attractions include the mirchi bazaar (largest red-chilly market
of India), wooden items, iron-crafts and camel leather accessories.
