Jaffna Festival

Once a space which predominantly reflects Sri Lankan village culture, 'Cinnamon Grand Colombo's' 'Nuga Gama' transforms into a thriving hub of Jaffna artistry and heritage. The annual 11-day festival brims with homegrown products, crafts, culinary traditions and artistic customs, bred and evolved on the streets of Yarlpanam; rehashing the vibrance of a culture rooted in the isle’s Northern Province.

Why You Should Go

Exclusively sourced from the Northern streets, following the word of well-versed locale suppliers and vendors, will be the best of what Jaffna has to offer. Native products beckon; from organic wholesomeness such as fruits and vegetables and fish and meats to arts and crafts, from home-made wine and spices to snacks crafted from local ingredients, a market of sorts unfurls in the retail niche of the fest.

The highlights and specialties of Jaffna cuisine do not go amiss: whipped up for dinner daily and for lunch on weekends, will be spreads brimming with traditional relishes of gastronomy.

On the entertainment front, Jaffna-based artisans and performers speak of the rich heritage framed out by way of cultural shows, customary features reflect in muppet shows and sheer talent in dance and music items.
