INDIA ASSOCIATION of CHARLOTTE - Announcement of FOI Glimpses

INDIA ASSOCIATION of CHARLOTTE    Announcement of FOI Glimpses     11-02-2021

As we indicated in our Press Release of 8/23/2021, that after Charlotte Center City Partners decided to postpone all events under the Charlotte SHOUT initiative this year, we followed their lead and decided to cancel our Festival of India, that we had rescheduled for September 25, 2021 at the Gateway Village Uptown.

FOI is a sheer labor of love for our all volunteer team, and we have been heartened by the continuing support and encouragement of all our ardent sponsors.

Even though we were very disappointed, our team is passionate about our mission, and were clamoring to persevere, and they have been working hard on a virtual "Glimpses of the Festival of India" event, based on the theme of celebrating a very popular Indian festival called Diwali. We are delighted to present a video recording of that live event here at:

Hope you enjoy the video presentation and walk away with a tiny glimpse of our rich cultural heritage? In the process, we also take pride in keeping the spirit of Festival of India alive here, and are committed to continuing our annual festival Uptown, next Fall. We pledge to keep you informed as we start planning for that early next year, and will keep you updated with the latest on this website.
