India Fest 2011


We are looking forward to watching our friends perform at India Fest! (As well as the delicious cuisine!) And of course, my girl wants a sari (or three).


India Fest 2011

Date: May 14, 2011            Time: 12PM to 5PM              Venue: Winston Square at Downtown Winston-Salem
In May 2006 the IUCA embraced Winston Salem's Mayor’s vision in promoting Winston-Salem as a cosmopolitan city -- a great place to live -- by hosting the very first “Utsava” (उत्सव -  meaning festival in Sanskrit) at the Sawtooth building in downtown Winston-Salem. “Utsava” featured participation from people of all ages and included some stellar dance and musical performances from members of the triad community. The event featured many vendors of artifacts from India and some restaurants selling Indian food.
Using the Sawtooth Center and downtown Winston-Salem as the venue also highlights the increasingly vibrant downtown area of Winston-Salem. In a global context, the Indian Diaspora covers practically every part of the world. It numbers more than a million each in eleven countries making the Diaspora very special. Residing in distant lands, its members have succeeded spectacularly in their chosen professions by dint of their single-minded dedication and hard work. For instance right here in the Triad, and over the last four years, the Indian-American community has grown exponentially from a modest 500 families to over 1200 families and comprise of a combination of doctors, engineers, researchers, university professors and administrators, bankers and information technology professionals.
