Are you planning a Basant Kite Festival or Basant Spring Family Festival? Are you overwhelmed with all the hard work and planning it takes? Event Solutions has been planning corporate events and special festivals for over 30 years, and has the experience to make your next spring festival amazing. The Basant Kite Festival, of the Punjab region, is a seasonal festival celebrated during springtime. It is a festival of kites, celebrated by people of all faiths, with the long-standing tradition of flying kites and holding fairs. It is celebrated with much excitement, heart, and joy. Customs of this fun festival include flying kites, wearing the color yellow, decorating the home, office, or festival with beautiful yellow flowers, swaying on swings and playing games.
The Planning Process
This year when planning this special festival, we suggest planning as soon as possible. There are lots of details that go into planning, and we want to make sure your celebration runs as smooth as possible. Spring celebrations are very popular, and therefore locations, vendors, caterers, and party rentals book quickly. There are many requirements depending on the specific location you chose, and this limits the venue options to some of the most popular locations in SoCal. Be sure to book one of these locations before someone else does!
Location- the Foundation for any Event!
We understand how important the right venue location is for your next Basant Festival. The right location needs to fit your budget, hold all your guests, have room for rentals and food stations, and fit your overall look and feel of the festival. Even more importantly, and specifically for a Basant Festival, the ideal venue needs to be a big open area fit to fly kites, with no power lines and limited trees. But don’t worry, your event manager will plan for this and bring in tables with umbrellas for lots of added shade. The ideal location for this festival is on flat land and with enough wind to fly kites. After all, nothing takes the “wind” out of a kite festival like no wind! The West Coast can get pretty hot, so why not take the kite festival into the water? Kitesurfing or ocean kiteboarding has made a splash in recent years. Have group races or use it as a sports activity at your next beach picnic. The most popular kitesurfing beach is Belmont Shores, but there are some other locations to also choose from!
Fun and Exciting Entertainment
This spring, let’s blow your guests away and create a day filled with fun and games. This festival is sometimes called “Basant Spring Family Festival” and is celebrated with both family and work-families. Therefore, your entertainment options should be family-friendly and specifically tailored to engage and bring everyone together. We recommend stations to build your own kite and then compete to see whose goes the highest! Imagine carnival rides, face painting, and arts and crafts stations. Picture traditional Indian dancers and staged live music in the background lifting hearts and spirits. With our company by your side, your next Basant Festival will be an absolute joy to behold!
30 Years of Experienced Catering
Your event manager understands the importance and tradition of this festival, and we believe that the food should reflect that! The color yellow is very significant in that it symbolizes prosperity, light, energy, and optimism. Therefore, yellow should not only shows up in what the buffet table is decorated with, but it is also important with how the food is prepared and displayed. Yellow rice, colored with saffron, sweet dishes, and yellow colored Halwa are typically served during this festival. Or we can completely make it your own with a large selection of menus to choose from. Our catering is special as everything is cooked fresh and on-site!
Your festival will look absolutely beautiful, covered in gorgeous yellow flowers, giant displays of hanging kites, beautiful tents, and gorgeous linen. Huge colorful lanterns will cover the space as well as lights and candles. Our company specializes in transforming locations and will make sure your festival looks amazing, while honoring the traditions and meaning of this important festival.
