The Brahmaputra Beach Festival is held annually in the month of January such that coincides with Magh Bihu, which is the harvest festival of Assam. The Brahmaputra Beach Festival is said to be inspired from various other similar festivals that are held in the southern states of India. The Brahmaputra Beach Festival is a confluence of the conventional with the modern and it also represents the culture and tradition of the state of Assam. The aim of the Brahmaputra Beach Festival is to primarily to promote indigenous culture, crafts and to popularize the traditional sports of Assam. The Brahmaputra Beach Festival is organized by the Assam Boat Racing and Rowing Association (ABRRA) which is located in Guwahati, Assam and also in collaboration with the Assam Tourism Development Corporation. During the festival season, the beaches are occupied to set up fairs. The festival includes different types of events and activities like Beach cricket, Beach volleyball, water rafting, etc. Visitors and tourists can also participate in these events and show off their skills. Traditional games of Assam like elephant races, egg breaking and cock fighting are also held along with these modern and technically advanced games.
