Diwali, the "Festival of Lights", is the ancient Hindu festival signifying the victory of good over evil by commemorating the return of Lord Rama from his 14-year-long exile and his vanquishing of the demon-king Ravana. Our Diwali celebration, popular with the Indian community in Philadelphia, includes a sumptuous buffet of Indian food and sweets, traditional music and dance performances, and activities including Henna, diyas, rangoli, games, and firecrackers.

Held in the Ibrahim Theater
