Can you imagine the celebration of an Indian festival and not think about all the great food that comes with it? Well, we certainly cannot, and neither should you!
The cuisine of India has a heritage just as rich as that of her culture and traditions. Every region, every season, and every festival or significant occasion is accompanied by a distinct menu of dishes ranging from surprisingly simple to intimidatingly intricate!
We hope to serve you the very same festive cheer via our food booths at the event, so please arrive with an appetite and don’t forget to bring CASH (Credits cards are accepted for a $15 minimum charge).
