Looking for an opportunity to experience the cultural diversity of India right here in Memphis? Then the Agricenter International is the place to be Saturday, November 1st, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. when the India Association of Memphis presents its 12th India Fest celebration.
“This year’s theme is India Rediscovered,” notes Richa Kabra, marketing analyst for India Fest 2014. Visitors can taste Indian cuisine from various regions, watch cooking demonstrations, shop for dresses and craft items at the bazaar, and enjoy Rangmanch musical presentations happening throughout the day.
Meanwhile, kids can discover India through its stories, crafts, and games at Kids Corner. You’ll also find dance lessons, college counseling, and sports centers. Over 10,000 people attended last year’s festival, which featured the Grand Chariot at the entrance. “The centerpiece for this year is a huge Lotus sculpture, symbolizing the national flower of India,” says Kabra. The sculpture is made of recycled materials.
The festival supports Mid-South Food Bank. Kids who bring two or more cans of food gain free entry.
