Well, I am not 100% sure but a reliable source told me that the games start on 31 January 2013. Usually, they are held in the month of February.

Has anyone been to the rural olympics? I am trying to find exact dates for 2014. The official site only has info up to 2012.

this is an annual event, so it has a web page on wikipedia. As per that page, the festival is scheduled in february of every year. So an old schedule might be just as good as a new one.

Hi jspanglet. I was there the last time on the dates which I have mentioned earlier in the post. The final dates are announced somewhere in December or January. As I am a photojournalist and based in Punjab itself, I keep track of such events. Do inbox me if you want to be alerted when the dates are finalized. I would be glad to inform you whenever I have the dates.

Best,
Ramin

Smile Rural olympics tickets

Hi guys!

By the time of the rural olympics 2014, which according to the Facebook group is the 31st Jan-2nd Feb (can someone else confirm this for me?) I will have been in India for around 4 months.

This is my first time to Punjab. How easy is it for a foreigner to buy tickets for the olympics? Can i buy tickets for just one day, and which is the best day to attend? By this time I will be very short for time.

Thanks,
E x

i think those were the dates for 2013 one, and i could not find any announcements for 2014. Check in January middle, i think.

it has a fb page, see if you have an account, for the dates, if any
https://www.facebook.com/kilaraipur?_fb_noscript=1

i don't think these events have any tickets to sell. find out where they are scheduled, and go. if you are a foreigner, you could even get some choice seats...which is what i have seen happen in jodhpur events in the past. All foreigners got some preferred seats under fans, while indians were just enjoying the events.

in fact, in the jodhpur one, we were passing by the clock tower, saw the parade, joined in, that lead directly into the stadium nearby, then we sat down for about a couple of hours for all the events, walked over and had lunch at a nearby place. no tickets, nothing. and did not know it was happening either.

just have enough water for your needs, and perhaps a chocolate bar or two, just in case.


PS : sorry, you already said fb.
