There are numerous types of saris that are worn in India which are designated as festival saris. These saris are specifically worn for different types of religious or festive occasions. The extensive variety of cultures and religious practices has given rise to a wide range of festive saris. There is no single standard festival sari that is worn in India. Instead, there are a wide range of traditional saris that are meant to be worn for various specific events. For every festive or special occasion, the types of saris that women will choose to wear will be different in different parts of the country. As most festive or special occasions in India are religious ones, these saris are regarded as auspicious and as such they are often adorned with artwork that specifically cater to the themes, ideas and beliefs associated with that specific festivity.

Typically, festive saris in India tend to be colorful, bright, peppy and elegant. They are generally made in a traditional way and yet they include themes, motifs and elements that make them unique and allow the wearer to stand out in a crowd. While in certain regions of India it is a common practice to include mythological motifs and symbols within the artwork of the saris, this is not really considered to be an essential requirement. The designs and hues that are implemented to decorate the saris frequently reflect the merrymaking and joy that is associated with the festive occasion.     

The type of sari that is to be worn by a woman depends often on the nature of the occasion itself. For instance, women in north India love to get all decked up in fine quality Benarasi silk saris during Diwali that are further adorned with superior golden zari artwork. On the other hand, plain or neutral colored saris are worn to commemorate the occasion of Holi. Similarly women in Bengal love to wear beautiful cotton and silk saris during various special occasions such as Durga Puja, Kali Puja and Saraswati Puja. These saris, when combined with the right kind of ornaments, can make a woman look truly beautiful and regal in appearance.
