There are enough historical evidences for supporting the fact that sindhi civilization is one among the oldest human civilization and thus sindhi community posses a very rich, clearly distinct and signatory cultural heritage which often gets its expression in the form celebration of festivals. Sindhis are known for the celebrating enthusiasm and peculiar style of celebration which often gets fused with music & folk art.
Sindhi community is also renowned for holding religious and social community events, which are held at community hall (Panchayat / Dharamshala building). Like the other Hindus, Sindhis also have tradition of keeping fast on Gyaras, Satnarayan and Ganesh Choith (Sankashti). This might be the influence of Ramzan, fasting month of Islam, that in the era prior to birth of Jhulelal, Hindus gathered on the banks of river Sindhu and prayed water God for rescuing them from the Mirik Shah, Muslim invader of Sindh. This forty days prayer session lasted with Aakashwani about the birth of Jhulelal. During all these forty days food was taken only once in a day and all lived very simple life. This tradition is kept in continuation in the form of Chaliho Sahib, annual religious festival of sindhi community.
Adoptive attitude has helped Sindhis to add a few Hindu festivals like, Ganshoutsav, Basant Panchami, Ram Navami, Navratara, Durga Ashtami & Tulsi Vivah, to the list of sindhi festivals.

Sindhi Festival Calendar - List of Sindhi Festivals in the Year 2013

Cheti Chandu, birthday of Jhulelal (also celebrated as Sindhi New Year Day) is the most important sindhi festival and sindhi festival calendar starts with this. Younger sindhi generations are more familiar with Gregorian (English) calendar so for their easiness we are giving month wise list of sindhi festivals (Year 2012). Do remember that there is difference between the yearly time span of Sindhi Tipano and Gregorian calendar so this is quite possible that a sindhi festival may be celebrated in two different months. Probably Lal Loi is the only sindhi festival which is always celebrated in the same month of January, most of times on 13th day of month.
