Festival of India Takes Over La Villita This Saturday


  • Santanu Das
Presented by the India Association of San Antonio — whose mission is to unite Indian groups in SA, to educate the broader community on Indian culture, and to celebrate that culture — this weekend’s Festival of India is an ideal event for families, folks with Indian roots, and the culturally-curious alike. This year’s festival theme is “Community Outreach: Bridging Cultures, Generations & Communities.”

Attendees can expect an authentic and immersive Indian cultural experience, including tons of different food options, cultural programs, music, dance, artisan vendors, saree wrapping demos, henna tattoos, Indian fashion booths, and much more. If you’re like us, you’re already going, no matter what, for the food alone. But, while you’re stuffing your face, you just might find yourself in the midst of a culturally relevant and transformative experience to boot, which is certainly a nice bonus. Plus, we’ve heard that cultural edification is as good for digestion as Mukhwas.

Free, Sat March 24, 3-9pm, La Villita, 418 Villita St., (210) 393-4107,
