Bringing a bunch of opportunities to you, the Youth Festival is a place to learn, show and enhance your knowledge.

What's happening?

When Shakespeare penned the words "All the world's a stage", little did he know that he was about to shape the mindset of a generation that came many years after his own. This is the philosophy that we, the youth, live by. We are always striving to make the most out of this proverbial stage that we have been put on.

What better way to improve your 'stage presence' than to visit an event aimed to enhance the youthful mindset? With a slew of motivational speakers, a variety of people who will open up new doors for you and a chance to showcase your skills, the youth festival is not to be missed.

What can you do here?

The organizers of the 4th Jaipur Youth Festival have gone through the pains of getting a hold of over 50 speakers from various fields- both niche and mainstream. These speakers will educate you about avenues and streams that you wouldn't even imagine exist. Apart from that, they are going to motivate you because, after all, you are the future of the nation.

Several workshops will be organized at the festival as well; so in case you are interested, you could get a head start on something that appeals to you.

Additionally, over 100 artists, musicians, singers and performers will make the show a lively one. Here, it's not just about learning and enhancing your knowledge, but also about fun. Speaking of fun, there are also three evening shows, which are all about letting your hair down and getting your groove on.
