India Festival Time

Be part of the largest Indian Festival in the region

Hosted and organized by the ICA, the India Festival is by far the largest and the most loved Indian festival in this part of the world. Celebrated in honor of the Independence Day of India, it brings people together from near and far especially, from India, to be part of the festivities and drench themselves in the feelings of patriotism even when they are away from their mother land.

The Venue

The festival will be celebrated on the 13th of August. The revelries will start at 11:00 AM and continue until 8:30 PM.

Live music, Dance, Food and lot more!

Each year more than ten thousand people become part of this truly colorful and mesmerizing event that brings the true feel of India to Oregon. If you want to experience the true taste, sight and sound of the country, then being part of the India Festival is a great opportunity.

Live music, Dance, Food

That’s not all!

A great thing about the India Festival is that it is not here to simply embrace the feeling of patriotism and celebrate the independence day of the country. It can be looked upon as a stage to showcase the talent that the Portland community has as well! Really? Yes! Anyone can come and participate in the event as a performer. If you love dance, music, acting or any other dance form for that matter, you are welcomed to be part of the India Festival.

Bring your friends, family and everyone else!

The India Festival brings the real colors and flavors of that amazing country to Portland. If you want to get a free taste of all this and have a great weekend experience, then don’t forget to visit the Pioneer Courthouse Square on the 13th of August, 2017 to celebrate the 2017 India Festival!
