India Fest Memphis ’16 – Savor the flavors of India!!
Kick start your festival season in style by heading to “India Fest 2016” at the Agricenter on Saturday November 5, 2016. On its 14th year running, “India Fest 2016” is themed ‘Festivals of India’ – a potpourri of the numerous festivals celebrated across the Indian subcontinent. The India Association of Memphis (IAM) will be hosting this day-long event packed with activities showcasing the unique traditions of Indian festivals.
The festival arena will be full of lights, sounds, aroma and everything Indian. The event will offer a glimpse at the hustle and bustle of India with numerous food stalls, clothing and jewelry vendors. The event will feature performances by local talent, intricate henna tattoos, Bollywood dances, cooking demonstrations as well as plenty of activities for children. With the wide array of entertainment and shopping options, there will be something for everyone in the family.
Any Indian festival will have its own signature dishes and the event this year will provide an opportunity to sample those exotic traditional dishes of India that are typically not served in restaurants. Indian cooking tends to be an enigma with all the different spices and the complexity of preparations, and people generally believe it is too complex to learn. But fear not! There will be an expert cook from the community who will break it down in their cooking demos so you can try and make some of these Indian food at home and earn all the appreciation from the members of the family.
There will also be dance workshops to skillfully guide you into the magical world of Bollywood dance and teach you how to swing and shake your hips like you’ve never done before! There will also be dance and music performances throughout the day by various groups. The Bazaar area will also carry ethnic wears that belong to the different regions of India for purchase.
The festival will run from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday Nov 5th 2016 at the Agricenter, Memphis. Admission is $6 for adults, $1 for children and free entry for 5 years and under. For more information visit www.indiafestmemphis.org
