    There is supposed to be a dessert fair in Jaisalmer every year, and I need to know when this is held and how long the festival is held for.
    Any other extra information would be great.

    The festival is held in February every year during the month of February which is called the Jaisalmer Dessert Festival. The festival is held for around four days during the first half of February. In the festival there is a lot to see such as painted and decorated camels, traditional dance performances, and the display of things which represent Rajasthan.
