A centrepiece of the event is dinner on the grassy greens of Springfield's Robelle Domain where visitors are invited to bring their own dinner, or food will be available from food trucks. Robelle Domain is a signature recreational site in Springfield with a 5,000 capacity amphitheatre. The site even has the Mahatma Gandhi Inspirational Bridge. Perfect for this event.

Mahatma Gandhi, who is an inspiration for the event, was an activist who became the leading figure in India's struggle to gain independence from Great Britain. He is internationally esteemed for his doctrine of nonviolent protest (satyagraha) to achieve political and social progress.
