This study reported ambient air and noise quality of three days Vigyan Mela 2016 which held at Bhopal city of Madhya Pradesh, India by measuring the concentration of particulate matter, Heavy metals, Poly aromatic hydrocarbon, Sulphur dioxide (SO2), Oxides of nitrogen (NOx), in ambient air and noise level using standard methods. People’s activity, vehicle emission, transport and anthropogenic activity are responsible for a considerable amount of air pollution and noise pollution. For present study, one ambient air and noise monitoring site was selected during the Bhopal Vigyan Mela. The results concluded that the concentration of the gaseous pollutants are within the standard values of National Ambient Air quality Standards, India but particulate matter in ambient air was found to be at high level at the monitoring site. Noise levels recorded in three days of Mela under commercial zone exceeded the prescribed standard level of 65 dB.
