Diwali – the Festival of Lights

Revel in the beautiful celebration of Diwali, the Festival of Lights.

Diwali usually falls on the 15th day of the holiest month of the Hindu calendar, Kartika. It is referred to as the Festival of Lights as it signifies the conquest of good over evil and light over darkness.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, head to Federation Square this Saturday for the spectacular Diwali Festival.

Here, you can learn more about the beauty and culture of India through a colourful display of Bollywood, folk and classic performances, music and cuisine.
