Mysore, also known as the cultural capital of Karnataka, is well known for the festivities that take place during the period of dasara, the state festival of Karnataka. The dasara festivities which go on for 10 days were first started by the king Raja Wodeyar I (1578-1617 CE) in the year 1610. On the ninth day of dasara called as Mahanavami, the royal sword is worshiped and is taken on a procession involving elephants, camels and horses. On the tenth day called as Vijayadashami, the traditional dasara procession (locally known as Jumboo Savari) is held on the streets of Mysore city. An idol of the Goddess Chamundeshwari is placed on a golden mantapa on the top of a decorated elephant and is taken around in the procession, accompanied by tableaux, dance groups, music bands, decorated elephants, horses and camels. The procession starts from the Mysore Palace and culminates at a place called Bannimantap where the banni tree (Prosopis spicigera) is worshipped. The dasara festivities culminate on the night of Vijayadashami with a torch-light parade (locally known as Panjina Kavayatthu)

The Mysore painting form is an offshoot of the Vijayanagar school of painting. The king, Raja Wodeyar (1578-1617 CE) is credited to have been the patron for this style of painting. The distinctive feature of these paintings is the gesso work in which gold foils are pasted on appropriate regions on the paintings. Mysore is also the location of the International Ganjifa Research Centre which is involved in the research of Ganjifa, the ancient card game and the artwork associated with it.

Mysore is famous for rosewood inlay work, with an estimated 4000 craftsmen in Mysore involved in this activity. Mysore also lends its name to the Mysore silk saree, a feminine wear, made using pure silk and gold zari.

Mysore also has institutes like the Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts (CAVA) which offers education in visual art forms like painting, graphics, sculpture, applied art, photography and photojournalism and history of art and the theatre repertory Rangayana, which holds plays and offers certificate courses on subjects related to theatre.
