The sweet festival aims to celebrate national integrity and exchange Indian culture among people of different cultures, languages, religions, and castes. There will be 470 varieties of sweets from 22 states. The festival also aims to celebrate the cosmopolitan tradition of the city, empower women, and promote homemade sweets. A cultural festival organized by the Telangana Cultural Department will represent all the cultures and traditions of India.

    Around 800 stalls will be set up, including sweets stalls, food courts featuring Telangana cuisine, and handicrafts and handlooms stalls. The festival is expected to attract 15 lakh visitors.
