When: June 6 to July 6
Where: City Centre Salt Lake
Expect fun, food and festivity as the month-long celebration of the 10th anniversary of City Centre Salt Lake culminates in The Telegraph’s birthday on July 7. Block your successive weekends for the following and more....
A date with the finest mangoes that the Nawabs of Murshidabad once used to swear by.
A brush with Ali Baba and his cave of jewels from the Arabian Nights.
A treasure hunt — with Sherlock’s cap firmly in place— cracking clues to secret destinations.
A taste of the best Chinese cuisine the city has to offer.
A night — or two — of Music Masti.
That’s not all. Shop till you drop at the Salt Lake mall and you might win a holiday to Dubai, Bangkok or Goa or a couple pass to a restaurant for dinner-for-two! Super excited? Here’s the inside story...
When: 1pm to 9pm
Where: Kund area, City Centre Salt Lake
Aam attack: You will get to sample some of the rarest and tastiest mangoes from Murshidabad, the land of Nawabs — mangoes so delicate that royalty would hold them with cotton wool gloves and eat! Kohitur, Bimli, Champa, Anaras, Sarenga, Bhabani, Mulayamjam, Mohanbhog… there’s a tempting list of more than 15 varieties of the king of fruits, which are hard to procure from the local market. In addition, there will be a wide range of mango treats at the festival such as sweets and savouries, sherbets, pickles and even kebabs!
A complete family event with special attractions for children. Get ready for your moment of “khul ja sim sim” with characters like Ali Baba, Abdullah and Marjina coming to life. There will also be a photo-op zone, magic show, face painting and more.

Treasure Hunt and Movie-Adda Quiz
A fun treasure hunt on your wheels that will test how well you know the mall and beyond. Plus, an interactive quiz on “adda and movies”.
Chinese Food Festival
There’s only one other cuisine that Bengalis love after their own — Chinese! Say cheers for Chinese as your favourite restaurants set up stall in the Kund area.
Shake a leg and sing along as RJ Jimmy Tangree and his Friends FM team take over the console, turning the mall into a dance floor with foot-tapping music and soulful songs. On June 6, Mir’s trademark mirth and Bandage’s beats will make sure you have a blast.
