The Festival of Lights or ‘Diwali’ is one of the most popular events in the Indian and South Asian cultural calendar. Not only does the festival in Dublin offer an opportunity for families in Ireland to come together to celebrate their culture and make a renewed commitment to friendship and goodwill, but it also showcases this vibrant culture for the enjoyment of everyone. Highlights will include Bollywood and classical dances, mouthwatering Indian food, an exhibition of colourful floral arts, an art and crafts bazaar and a spectacular fireworks display to top it all off. The festival is supported by Dublin City Council as part of the One City One People Campaign.
