Tamenglong happens to be the largest producer of oranges in Manipur. Using oranges as a good reason to bring more business and boost the tourism of the district, every year the Orange Festival is held in Tamenglong. The Orange Festival is organised during the month of December where participants come from not only the district but the rest of the state and region.
The Orange Festival is organised every year with the aim of promoting the largest produced fruit of the district. In its backdrop, the festival also helps boost socio-cultural activity in the state. Today, the Orange Festival is one of the major tourist attractions of Manipur.
Apart from being a platform for traders to meet and improve trade relations, during the Orange Festival several musical and cultural programmes are also held. One of the major attractions of the festival is the Orange Beauty Queen contest where girls from all over the state come to participate.
