The annual social and cultural fest of IIT Kharagpur - Spring Fest – will be held from January 20 to 23, 2012 and will test the talents of participating students in more than 50 events in varied genres.

The highlight of this year's fest is “IIT Kharagpur Model United Nations Conference”, which is being held as a part of the Spring Fest's diamond jubilee initiative in association with the Debating society of IIT Kharagpur. It is being organised in collaboration with UNIC (India & Bhutan).

“The three-day conference will have innovative councils, a dynamic International Press, exciting crisis simulations, and the much awaited delegate night,” says Aparanjitha Konatham, Core Organising Team Member, Spring Fest 2012.

“Spring Fest has always been ‘the true spirit of youth' and encompasses aspirations and enthusiasm of college students across the nation.”

She says having gone nationwide for the first time last year, Wildfire, the rock band event of the fest will now be bigger and better than ever. To promote this the organisers are conducting prelims in five cities - Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Guwahati. This year's social cause of the festival is ‘Child Upliftment'.
