The Mayong-Pobitora festival is an annual celebration in Mayong which celebrates the fusion of magic and wildlife. People who practice black magic take out a procession during the three-day festival. The interesting thing is that the people belonging here don't know how black magic became so popular in this place or who was the first to practice magic there.

It is believed that people from far off places used to come here to learn and master the art of black magic. Today the village has still got a community of 100-150 magicians. The number of black magic performers has decreased to a greater extent due to the lack of resources and money.
