Event Details

Diwali Fest returns for the 15th Annual Celebration of Diwali Downtown Vancouver. This multicultural event features music and dance performances by local artists, including the beloved rangoli room where participants work together to create a room-sized mosaic. Given that it is customary to wear something new on Diwali to symbolize the new year, the Roundhouse will offer a sari wrapping workshop and a fashion show. There will also be diyag and rangoli painting workshops for children. Celebrate Diwali, where light defeats darkness, good triumphs over evil, knowledge overcomes ignorance, and hope vanquishes despair.
