The Festival of Lights aka Diwali will be held on Sunday 20 October 2019 from 9am to 4pm at the Dandenong Market, cnr Clow & Cleeland Streets, Dandenong. A fun, FREE, family event, come along and celebrate the triumph of good over evil and let the light into your life at this cultural event.

Expect the whole shebang at this colourful festival and experience the Indian culture through authentic Indian food, flavours, arts and crafts and entertainment. Get moving at Bollywood workshops and get authentic by dressing up in a traditional sari before popping into the photo booth. Perhaps you'd like your hands decorated in the traditional art of mehendi by the henna artist.

Be sure to arrive hungry and enjoy some delicious Indian street food with Babaji's Kitchen. Melbourne's Indian street food wallahs, they pay homage to the street food hawkers of Mumbai's lanes and Indian rail's platforms. If you've never had dosa before (fermented rice pancakes), get adventurous and try the delicious crisp pancake with a curry and some coconut chutney on the side.

With lots of interactive performances to enjoy, a Bhangra team from Melbourne will celebrate the richness of the Punjabi culture. High quality, cultural, fusion performances, boisterous are a few words that come to mind of the entertainment on stage that'll get you in the zone for that festival feel.
