When we started the Great India Festival, we sought to better promote conversations between Indian and other cultures. We do that by displaying the beauty of Indian culture to the general public through music and dance performances, demonstrations, workshops, and food. It is an event that we’re proud of, and one that has grown into a must-see Ottawa event.
So we’re so excited to share the most recent news: The Great India Festival was just named by FlightNetwork, North America’s leading travel agency, in their latest list of the 40 best festivals in North America in 2018. And we couldn’t be happier.
Here’s what they had to say about us:
Around that same time in Ottawa, don’t forget to pay a visit to another major cultural event happening nearby: The Great India Festival. The cultural marathon strives to establish inter-cultural interaction and understanding by creating a festival that everyone can enjoy. India’s rich heritage is put on display through the performing arts, workshops, food, embroidery and handiwork, as well as famous movies, and documentaries. It is a chance for everyone to dive into Indian culture, and come out knowing—and loving—more.
As FlightNetwork goes on to mention, our event is run by volunteers, and entirely free to enter. We call upon everyone in Canada and other countries too to Ottawa on August 10-12, 2018 to have fun, and enjoy the Indian culture.
So thank you, FlightNetwork, for including us amongst some of the biggest festivals in North America. See you all in August.
