The Potato Flower or "Gol-e Kachalu" Festival

The potato flower festival is a local and agricultural festival each year around may celebrated by local people and farmer organazied by government organization to promote local product!

The Potato Flower Festival (Gol-e Kalachu in dari) usualy held on June every year was organized with great success for the first time in 2017. Several thousand visitors attended the celebrations both in the Provincial Park at the center of new city and at the entrance of the Foladi Valley.

Nowadays, especially in the lower valley, the agricultural landscape is dominated by potato crops, hence the success of the celebrations seems quite understandable.
