Discover Sikh and Punjabi culture, tradition and heritage at the Vaisakhi Festival in Trafalgar Square.

One of the most important events in the Sikh calendar, Vaisakhi is celebrated on 13 April (occasionally 14 April) each year by more than 20 million Sikhs around the world. It was on this day in 1699 that the Khalsa order was established by Guru Gobind Singh.

The annual London celebrations, which also mark Sikh New Year, are led by a Sikh community group and take place later in the month. 

Enjoy free live music performances, see works by Sikh artists, try out gatka or the Army-led obstacle course, and tuck into traditional food from the stalls in Trafalgar Square. You’ll also find lots of family activities, including arts, crafts and turban tying, at this cultural event open to everyone.
