But when it is celebrated depends on the calculation of the Jyotish(Astrologers) scholars. They calculate the tithi of the lunar month. So gai Jatra always falls on the first day (Pratipada) of Bhadra Krishna Paksha fifth month of the Lunar calendar.

It usually falls on August or September of the solar calendar.
