Lavi Fair is a unique event held in Rampur Bushahr which is a municipal council in the district of Shimla. It is celebrated every year from 11th to 14th of November and is attended by small and large-scale merchants and businessmen, but is majorly organised to encourage business amongst the locals and the shepherds. Locals celebrate the event to commemorate the Mutual Trade Treaty that was signed between Rampur Bushahr and Tibet. The venue of Lavi fair is on the banks of the mesmerising River Sutlej, and one can get a glimpse of the traditional methods of trade of essentials that include wool, horses, mules, yaks, dry fruits etc. These items are either sold or bartered and the entire experience at the foothills of the Himalayas in November is an exhilarating experience to have.
Lavi Fair is also called the International Lavi Trade Fair which has been held in the region for over 300 years. It is considered a legacy of Himachal Pradesh. The rich cultural, social and economic history is celebrated during this fair and hence it is also believed to have high aesthetic significance in Shimla. It is an international fair and people participate in this event with great enthusiasm. The platform is never missed by the traders as it only helps them build and strengthen the bond on a personal level.
