What Is It?

The Ballard Estate Festival is a weekends-only festival which will take place in the gorgeous Ballard Estate area in Fort in South Mumbai. It will begin on Oct 29, and go on for 8 months till May 2017. Organised by Ferriswheel Entertainment and the braindchild of Shubhra Bhardwaj, this was a successful event in the early months of 2016. Did you go? The events this time around will include an open air cinema, heritage walks, childrens’ zones, a pet fair, a flea market, a food bazaar, performances by Anmoll Malik and Shibani Kashyap and comedy shows.

Usually this part of Mumbai is wonderful , but let’s be honest, it’s quiet AF. It’s time that we make some noise and liven it up – just a little bit. The weekends spent here will be really fun, a mix of music, art, culture and shopping in the open air.
