A wide range of contests...

...under ten different streams.

1. Literary

Articulation of thoughts into meaningful words is an essential quality that is worth developing in the formative years of education. Here is an opportunity for your children to exhibit their literary skills and offer it as a birthday gift to Lord Krishna on the occasion of Sri Krishna Janmashtami.


2. Oratory

To elucidate the glories of God by using the gift of speech is one of the primary methods to attract the attention of God. Heritage Fest aims to provide a substantial channel for the younger generation to utilize their oratory skills in glorification of The Supreme Lord.

Sacred Chants

3. Sacred Chants

Chanting the sacred mantras or prayers glorifying the Lord, help in delivering the wild mind from its restlessness and calming it down. Gita sloka chanting and Vedic Mantra chanting competitions are aimed at preserving this rich Vedic tradition by inculcating it in the young generation.

Drawing and art is the most practical and popular way to engage in worship of God in all the cultures. Heritage Fest gives you an opportunity to engage your children from a very young age, by giving them an opportunity to colour Krishna’s forms.

Every Indian parent loves to see their child dressed up in a costume of Lord Krishna, Radha or any puranic characters. Children dressed in these costumes remind us of the heroic deeds and help in glorification of the Lord. Heritage Fest gives you an opportunity to dress up your child in such divine forms and enhance the glorification and remembrance of the Lord.
