The Ganesh Festival is a ten day Hindu Festival celebrating the elephant-headed God, Lord Ganesh's birthday. A colourful festival that sees many Ganesh idols installed throughout the country and people's homes, Pujas are performed every morning and evening, with the final day of the Festival having the idol immersed in water. It is believed he goes back to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati after the immersion.

For the very first time, hosted by The Australian Indian Innovations Inc (AIII) the Ganesh Festival comes to the South Eastern suburb. This event is FREE, however you need to REGISTER for your FREE ticket. The event is held at the Springers Leisure Centre, 400 Cheltenham Rd, Keysborough on Sunday 8 September 2019 from 11am to 6pm in a celebration that feels like it's got all 10 days packed into one.

See the event page for a full list of performances and activities that includes lots of kids activities, and kids theatre screening a Bal Ganesha film. Feel free to bring Ganesh Idols from home for the Immersion. Kids can also enjoy painting and colouring Ganesha. All painting materials will be provided.

There's entertainment for all ages, and one of the biggest handicraft, jewellery, clothing and variety stalls that includes henna and food with vegetarian options. There's live drum sessions to get the beat going, cultural performances and chess and carrom board games. If you're never tried carrom, give it a go and test your skills. All in all, this is a fun day for all and it's all indoors, so you don't have to worry about the weather.
