The Rongtheang Fest is a Village festival, held every year at Rongtheang village in Diphu. It is a grand festival in this district. The importance of Rongtheang Fest is paramount today, especially at this juncture in Assam history, where gaps are increasing in the social fabric of the State. The Festival has become far more significant for the cause of unity and peace among all.
As a village festival that has witnessed the participation of different tribes and communities, it is hoped people elsewhere take a leaf from the Rongtheang Fest and the people of Rongtheang Village about inter-culture and inter-faith bonding.
