The 5th edition of Mukha Mela or Wooden Masks festival was held at Kushmandi in Dakshin Dinajpur district between October 26 and 28, 2018. It was a grand success and evolved into a major festival of the North Bengal region, drawing over 10,000 visitors. Wooden Mask artists of Kushmandi, Dhokra artists from the villages of Dakshin Dinajpur and Uttar Dinajpur districts, basketry artists from Raigunj, pottery artists from Kunoor in Uttar Dinajpur put up stalls on the Mela ground. Temporary workshop spaces were created where visitors engaged in workshops with Wooden Mask and Dhokra artists. On stage folk performances in the evening on all three days saw 15 local Khon dance drama teams, 6 local Gomira dance teams, a Bhawaiya music team from Cooch Behar, a Domni performing team from Malda and a Raibenshe performing team from Bardhaman enthralling the audience. Visitors thronged the local Community Museum at the Folk Art Centre in big numbers, especially college students, photographers, researchers, art lovers, designers and folk enthusiasts from Kolkata, Balurghat, Raigunj and Malda.

Many of the visitors toured nearby villages to meet Wooden Mask artists and Dhokra weavers and also toured Mahipal Dighi, Aira forest and local haats. The event was well covered by the media.

Kushmandi has the potential of evolving into a major cultural hub of North Bengal, celebrating the region’s intangible cultural heritage. Village Melas are a fantastic tool in this regard and bring pride to the villages, artists and their art forms.
