Folk Festival is traditionally known as “Lok Mela” is going on in Islamabad. It is the beautiful unification of cultural presentation of all four provinces and including Gilgit Baltistan. It is an annual event with the prime focus to promote inter-provincial harmony and same time it is an immense opportunity for all those who are resident of capital as it is very infrequent that cultural events are staged here in Islamabad. The festival aims at promoting indigenous folk heritage, creating harmony among all federating units and providing a platform to master artisans, folk artists and rural performers to get recognition of their talent at national level.
