Dhaka International FolkFest
Date: 14-16 Nov
Time: 6:00 pm – 12:00 am
Place: Bangladesh Army Stadium
It’s hard to find people who are not fond of music. Music soothes the soul. So calling it soul food would not be an overstatement. Sometimes it’s the lyrics that hit the soul, other times it’s the tune that pierces the heart. Some music has even greater impacts. For instance, folk music is very raw in its expression of conveying feelings and is interlinked with culture.
‘Dhaka International FolkFest’ is just a small effort to spread the beauty of folk music among the masses. The motive behind this event is to assimilate cultural diversity from all over the world through folk music.
FolkFest is a yearly event that has been held at Bangladesh Army Stadium from the very first show. The event has been graced by over 500 artists from 17 countries making it the largest FolkFest in Asia. In this event, artists from different cultural backgrounds come together to celebrate the sheer brilliance of folk music and perform on a single stage. So if you want to soothe your senses with the euphony of folk music this November 2019, join the biggest FolkFest on the continent.
Date: 7 – 9 Nov
Time: All day
Place: Bangla Academy Suharwardy Udyan Road, Dhaka, Bangladesh
Literature is a strong, if not the strongest, cultural heritage that we are proud of. All the greats of modern literature, – Madhusudan Dutta to Rabindranath Tagore, the modernist poets of both West and East Bengal – were the ardent lovers of western and oriental literature. With that in mind, the mission of Dhaka Lit Fest is to celebrate the spirit of cosmopolitan modernism.
Dhaka Lit Fest has been held in the heart of the bustling metropolis, shaded by an enormous banyan tree amid Dhaka University since 2012. The event is mainly focused on literature but also embraces a wide range of topics including fiction and literary non-fiction to history, politics and society, poetry and translations, science and mathematics, and philosophy and religion. About 400 participants representing over 50 countries have been part of DLF.
Don’t miss the event if you want to keep enriching your knowledge through fierce debates and fresh expressions this November 2019.

But even if you are not an admirer or follower of anime or manga, you are more than welcome to join the party.
Other attractions of this event include a cosplay, AMV screening, Kakegurui Games, competitions and more. So don’t miss out on this event or you will have to wait another year to be a part of this mega event this November 2019.
Bicycle Show 2019 (4th Edition)
Date: 28 – 30 Nov
Time: 10:00 am – 07:00 pm
Place: International Convention City Bashundhara – ICCB
Bicycling had never been as popular or convenient as it is today. The bicycle industry has experienced a tremendous growth in the last couple of years, with two reasons considered to be aiding the surge in demand.
The first one being the convenience that bicycles have over any other vehicle. On top of that, bicycles provide quick and easy ways around the unbearable traffic jams in busy areas. The other reason is the rise of some community groups, specially BDCyclists, that have contributed immensely to popularise the bicycling trends among youngsters.
In effect of this surge in demand, events like Bicycle Show have been organized for the last three years. This year, in its 4th iteration, Bicycle Show will be held in November 2019 at the International Convention City Bashundhara – ICCB and will be hosted by Savor International Limited. In this international exhibition, renowned bicycle brands will showcase their products and introduce new technologies. Don’t miss it, if you are one of the avid bicyclists who use bicycles every day and want to stay up to date with trends.
