The city of living heritage!
The Heritage Festival had its humble origins in 2012, then known as ‘Heritage Week’, which was initiated to commemorate the World Heritage Day on the 18th of April. Since then, the ‘Heritage Week’ has grown by leaps and bounds with the support of the people of the city!
The festival includes a variety of activities such as workshops, documentary film screening, lectures, exhibitions, heritage cycle ride, art competitions, campus tours, and story-telling sessions for children & museums visits.
Prestigious organizations like Bharat Itihas Sanshodhak Mandal, NFAI, FTII, IUCCA, Maharashtra Sahitya Parishad, Tilak Maharashtra Vidyapeeth and several museums across the city participated in this event. Omkareshwar Temple premises and Vishrambaug Wada were opened for public for the first time.
The festival is unique in Maharashtra and perhaps one the first of its in India. We aim to get every strata of the city population involved with Pune’s rich heritage.
