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. Each year Cary Diwali dazzles the crowd with a colorful and energetic cultural program, vendor bazaar, delicious Indian food, cultural exhibition and fireworks. Experience thousands of years of Indian culture in a modern, festive setting with fun for the entire family!

This year’s theme, Darpan – Reflections of India, allows cultural program participants to share their unique view of India. Alisha Chinai, the queen of Indian pop music, is the featured entertainer.

Cary Diwali is co-presented by Hum Sub, Inc. and the Town of Cary Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department.
