Kalapini has been conducting a programme of VARSHANTA ON 31st of December each year over the last 5 years. Initially it started as the the presentation of work by some renowed Marathi artist. Artists of Kalapini pay tribute to the eminent personality for his contributuin to art. The different idols were P K Atre, P L Deshpande, Vasant Kanitkar & Kusumagraj. The event later changed to Varshant Sanskrutik Mahotsav.

On 31st December, every year, Kalapini does organise a Group Programme, in which 10 - 15 small institutions and performing groups from the town and vicinty, are given a stage to present their art like music, folk dances, karate, gym tactics, body building etc. This program holds its uniqueness on that day unlike the Dance and DJ parties which are commonly celebrated everywhere. Since last 3 years, this programme is assisted by Shree Krishnarao Bhegde Pratishthan. In this era of competition, this is a unique example of unity amongst artists & performers of different groups.
