The folk festivals and celebrations which are held in Arunachal Pradesh are as manifold as the cultures and traditions. In the cities and settlement areas with predominantly immigrant population are in addition to the Hindu festivals - which are based on the lunar calendar - above all also Christian holidays celebrated. Many traditions and celebrations of secluded living tribal population have Buddhist influences, others are completely unique and are lived exclusively by certain tribes.
