Diwali 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. We hope to see you next year!

The University of Iowa's Indian Student Alliance will be hosting their annual Diwali festival, the auspicious Indian holiday, also known as the "Festival of Lights" in a celebration of the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. This year, the Indian Student Alliance will be collaborating with the South Asian Student Alliance in an effort to take the event to new heights. Featuring an authentic vegetarian Indian dinner followed by a cultural showcase, the event is a staple for the Indian community in Iowa City and the nearby areas, displaying the talents of University of Iowa students, community members, and performers from across the state. See you there at the Iowa Memorial Union!

If you are interested in performing at our Diwali Festival, please contact the Diwali director (2020-2021), Yajatra Kulkarni (yajatra-kulkarni@uiowa.edu) for more information on auditions!
