Savour the tastes of authentic Indian food with a huge array of food stalls along River Terrace. Admire delicate hand-made Indian jewellery, fine fashion and a great range of Indian cinema and music.
There will also be demonstrations of traditional Henna painting and classical Indian and Bollywood dance performances and workshops.
You can enjoy the films and performances every evening in The Square from 21 October in the lead up to Diwali Festival.
While Diwali is commonly referred to as the 'festival of lights', for Hindus it is actually about celebrating inner light and the belief that good will triumph over evil.
Come down to Fed Square for this beautiful festival renowned for its brilliant displays of fireworks and hundreds of glittering lamps to light up the 'darkness'.
