Hey! It’s Diwali tomorrow.

Here’s a preemptive “Happy Diwali” to all, and also an excuse to let you know that Vancouver has a big do on Saturday, where all are welcome to come out.


Venue: Roundhouse Community Centre – 181 Roundhouse Mews (Pacific at Davie)
Time: 12pm-4pm
Tickets: FREE

This family event is a massive showcase highlighting the various classical and folk arts of India featuring the top performing artists from BC. Also featuring handicraft, mehndi, clothing and food vendors, and dance workshops!

More info here, and apparently, they’ll also be a UBC event sometime next week.
