The first session showcased narratives of origin stories, musical piece, Nepali dance (Kadam chaloagipachi), traditional songs and show. Food exhibition by different communities constituted the second session. More than seventeen groups came forward to exhibit the food of their respective community.

Indigenous games such as pole climbing, walking on bamboo stills, wrestling, board games and many were some of the main attractions of the event.
