A joint effort of the State Department of Tourism, District administration of Sikar, Jhunjhunu and Churu, and the M.R. Morarka- GDC Rural Research Foundation, Shekhawati Festival has put Shekhawati on the list of rural tourist attraction. Tourist can closely watch the true life of the villagers and the greenery of the countryside while riding on the horseback and see the agricultural revolution of the villages while they experience the simplicity and warmth of the villagers. The region now exports 80 per cent of its crops as compared to the production that was just 10 per cent of its requirement, few years back.
The featured programmes are one-day tour of the region, farm visits, rural games, camel and jeep safaris, cultural programmes, competitions of the havelis (which emphasizes the need of preservation of the invaluable heritage), and splendid fireworks.
