Despite the dreary winter days, the festival never loses its aglow. Starting from a camel parade, it offers you a number of events, including the camel polo, exhibitions of handicrafts, camel milk and dairy products, a relay with camels, Ice-Shagai game, calf race, camel museum and performances. You can also visit a camel herding family, ride on camelbacks, participate in the parade or make bets on the races. The Camel Festival first started with a purpose of breeding, protecting and increasing the productivity of camels in 1997 and was held annually thereafter.
