The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has announced a two-day-long flower festival called “Palaash 2024” on March 2 and March 3. The event will be hosted at DDA Greens at Shivaji Marg, Rohtak Road in Delhi. The festival will be inaugurated by Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena.

The festival will present a stunning array of flowers, plants, and floral arrangements. Visitors can explore different varieties of flowers from indigenous to exotic, beautifully arranged to create captivating displays.

It would be an opportunity for flower enthusiasts to appreciate the beauty and diversity of nature’s creations.

These attractions will be adding vibrancy and surreal experience to the festival, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the saga of dance, music and joy. To tantalize the taste buds of visitors, the festival will offer a selection of delicacies from our rich street food. From snacks to desserts, attendees can indulge in a culinary journey while enjoying the floral extravaganza. This aspect of the festival always adds a gastronomic dimension, complementing the visual and cultural experiences on offer,” the DDA said in a statement.
