Jax India Fest on October 16, 2010 from 3PM to 11PM at the Metropolitan Park

Jax India Fest 2010 is being organized by the Hindu Society of North East Florida along with various Indian organizations of Jacksonville.  Jax India Fest 2010 is on October 16, 2010 from 3PM to 11PM at the Metropolitan Park.  Admission is free and it is open to all. 

Jax India Fest 2010 promises to be a fun filled event.  The event will have fifty-plus booths from a variety of regional Indian organizations and businesses that cater to the local population.  The booths will feature authentic Indian cuisine, traditional Indian dresses, traditional Indian jewelry, and Indian art.  In addition, traditional Indian folk and classical dances will be performed.  The event will culminate in Navratri celebrations, which will include Garba Ras and Dandia-very popular traditional dance in which everyone participates.

Jax India Fest has become a very popular annual event that attracts a large number of people from all walks of life to celebrate the rich Indian culture and heritage.  In 2009, the first year of the event, about three thousand people came out to celebrate Jax India Fest.  We expect the turnout to be more than six thousand, which, is double compared to last year.

The mission of Jax India Fest is to foster among all fellow citizens a better understanding of the cultural diversity and rich cultural heritage of India.
