Awesome, right; then be a part of the 2nd rendition of Clean Beach Festival being organized on 25th and 26th February 2017 at Gopalpur sea beach.

Food Festival; Music & Entertainment; Star Gazing; Cyclothon; Laser Show on history of Gopalpur; Beach Theatre;Rock Band and several fun filled Beach Games.
Clean Beach Festival is the brainchild of Bhubaneswar based media conglomerate, Prelude Novel Ventures Pvt. Ltd. After successfully completing the first venture at Paradip Beach in 2016, it is about to start the second version.
Throwing light on the occasion Satyabrata Sanu Ratho, Director of Prelude Novel Ventures Pvt Limited said “The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness among all to keep the beaches tidy and litter free. We intend to take this initiative beyond Odisha and are collaborating with district administration all over the country regarding the same. I believe this initiative will also help in inflow of more visitors to the beaches thus giving a push to the tourism potential of our country and at the same time keep intact the cleanliness aspect of these beautiful beaches”
That is not all of it. The much celebrated sand artist, Mr. Sudarshan Pattnaik is also going to be a part of this event. Here's his message.
So now you exactly know where to be on the last weekend of February 2017. See you at Gopalpur!!
