Earlier on June 13, 2022, the Cuttack district administration decided to hold the Bali Yatra this year. The district administration had cancelled the annual fair in the Millennium City for the last two years (2020 and 2021) in view of the outbreak of the COVID pandemic.

The annual fair always has several attractions for children like toy stalls, giant wheels, different games, maut ka kuan (literally well of death) and food stalls selling Odia delicacies (Cuttack Dahibara Aludum, Thunka puri, Kulfi, Gupchup, Mathura Cake, Banarasi Paan etc.) from different parts of the state, and other vendors selling toys, curiosities, and other gifts.

Bali Jatra also witnesses a lot of cultural programs. Every year millions of people from all around the world visit Bali Jatra to experience it.
