Falcon Festival is an annual event which happens every year at Umrangso in Dima Hasao district of Assam.
This year, Bollywood singing sensation Jubin Nautiyal will perform on the first night of the two-day festival beginning on November 19.
This festival aims at creating an awareness among the people about Amur Falcons, the longest travelling migratory birds.
Amur falcons come each year during the last week of October or first week of November to roost in Dima Hasao.
Due to lack of awareness these birds used to be killed for sport and fun.
This festival is being organised with a view to creating awareness on Amur Falcons.
