As many of you know, in 2015 IAAI converted its annual Indian Independence Day celebrations into an India Day event. We received tremendous support from the community and we had a successful first 3 years.
With this event, the vision is to bring all the regional Indian communities together and share our rich culture and heritage across Iowa. It will be an outdoor public event and admission will be free. Festivities include Flag Hoisting, Stage Activities, Arts & Cultural display, Authentic Food and Sports.
We need support from you all whether it be Associations, Groups, Individuals, Art Academies, Cultural Centers, Dance Schools, Businesses etc. We have talked to several groups/associations and are in the process of talking to others.
