Celebrate Diwali: The Indian Festival of Light

October 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

Tasting. You will not be cooking in this class.

Age Restrictions

For ages 18 & up


Celebrate the Festival of Light, Indian-style, at this come & go event. A background of Bollywood music will set the stage for a sea of fresh marigolds; henna hand painting;  a feast of meatless dishes to sample – from street-style tidbits to sweet treats;  and  a colorful backdrop for your social media photos.  Drop by early for the festivities if you have other pans for the evening or join us a little later for the food, fun, and lighting of Diwali candles on the upstairs patio as the sun sets. 

Sapna Punjabi-Gupta, our cultural ambassador and culinary wellness expert will provide insight into the traditions during the evening.

 For ages 18 & up. Tickets are priced per person.
