Sibi lays 163 Kms. – three 3 hrs. Drive to the south east of Quetta-Baluchistan Pakistan, at the entrance of the well-known “Bolan Pass”. Since the 15th century, this town has been the gathering place of all the tribal chiefs of the area. The British had carried on and preserved this tradition in the form of an annual “Darbar” or meeting, combining it with a fair where thousands of Baluchi tribesmen gathered along with their animals in mid February. This tradition still carries on and every year during February.
Sibi has its famous SIBI MELA (An animal event), where tribesmen flock from all over Baluchistan, parts of Sindh and Punjab with their animals. The significant features of this event “Mela” are horse and cattle and cultural shows, tent pegging, camel races, animal markets and exhibitions of handicrafts, tribal dresses and folk dances. These are included in this great event. The chief guest of the local area where the show is held inaugurated the show. It has great pleasure and business for the local people because the local people and artisans from the other parts are participated in the occasion and earn reasonable income.
