The Festival of India that we have been organizing is held at Uptown Charlotte, on two consecutive days (Saturday and Sunday). The Festival program includes performances by artists from the Indian community, Indian food, exhibits of arts & crafts from different regions of India and much more. The event is organized to showcase Indian culture and heritage in a very festive spirit. It welcomes people of all communities in the area and provides a great opportunity for cultural exchange with other Americans. It also gives our children an opportunity to display their talents in art, dance and music, thereby reaffirm their pride in their heritage. And it creates an awareness of Indian culture among other communities in the Carolinas.
The program has been growing steadily and we expect it to be a phenomenal success as it has been in the past. The Festival has become one of the key cultural events in Charlotte and is considered our community’s major contribution to the city. In recognition of that, the Honorable Mayor, City of Charlotte has honored our community by proclaiming the opening day as India Day of Charlotte!
