Marwad is a land of festivals and fairs. Besides the national festivals of Holi, Divali, Muharram, Christmas; birth anniversaries of gods and goddesses are also celebrated in the state.

Marwad has made a significant contribution to Indian art, and there is a rich literary tradition too, especially of bardic poetry. Chand Bardai's poem Prithvi Raj Raso or Chand Raisa, the earliest manuscript of which dates to the 12th century, is particularly notable. A popular source of entertainment is the khyal, a dance drama composed in verse with festive, historical or romantic themes.

The spring festival Gangaur during late March to early April, and the Teej festival between early and late August are important. The Teej welcomes the monsoon, when the state's many lakes become full.

The Pushkar camel and cattle fair during mid-November, the Nagaur festival during late-January to early-February and the Koolyat fair at Bikaner during mid- to late-November are well-known fairs. The desert festival at Jaisalmer during early to mid-February is a famous modern fair.

The Urs Mubarak of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (Reh.) is held from 1st to 6th Rajab as per the islamic calander. The city of Ajmer is located amids high hills like a fortress. On its west-southern side, spread Taragarh range of hils. In the vally of these hils stood vast and grand Dargh-e-Mualla of Hazra Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) with boundary walls around.
