We have the pleasure to announce our most treasured cultural event – “The Festival of India”. Started in 1981, the Festival has grown to be one of the largest and most popular family cultural events held in Central Virginia. Through this event we share the art and culture from different regions of India. The festival will be held on September 24th & 25th, 2016 (Saturday and Sunday) at The Greater Richmond Convention Center. This event is the largest Asian-Indian festival in Virginia and offers all guests exciting opportunities to experience traditional arts, culture, and food from the Indian sub-continent. Last year, over 20,000 people attended the festival indicating that the Richmond community’s interest in the Festival of India continues to increase every year.
