The Valley does not have any special festivals of its own, but all the major religious festivals are celebrated with a great pump and show. The Eid festivals are the most waited for. Both Eid prayers are performed in local mosques followed by a group visit to relatives for Dua and meals. Young and old alike wear new clothes to look their best. Young children are often seen counting their Eid money and buying sweet and toys. Eid Melad-un-Nabi (birthday of the prophet pbuh) is also celebrated with a great enthusiasm. People from the neighbouring areas arrive in the form of rallies in local mosques to take part in celebrations and to listen to scholars.

Shab-e- Barat is celebrated almost fortnight prior to the month of Ramadan with an extraordinary display of firework and crackers. The celebration of Shab-e-Barat in this fashion might have deep roots in the culture, it completely lacks the backing of the religion.
