Diwali is the most widely celebrated Hindu holiday and marks the victory of good over evil and the beginning of the New Year. Also known as the festival of lights, Diwali encourages artistic expression through vibrant performances by local artists, unique exhibits and colorful decorations.
Now in its 14th year, Cary Diwali dazzles the crowd with a colorful and energetic cultural program, vendor bazaar, delicious Indian food, cultural exhibition and fireworks. Hundreds of local performers as well as internationally-known artists provide a day of vibrant entertainment. Experience thousands of years of Indian culture in a modern, festive setting with fun for the entire family!
Aapo Deepo Bhava, meaning “Be alight unto yourself,” is this year’s theme for Diwali, and focuses on the important contributions people, especially youth make to their community.
