Essence of India is a series of 7 cultural events held at NARA park, Acton-- in collaboration with town and several local cultural councils.

The event has been consistently attended by an average of 2500 people each year.

Concord Cultural Council nominated Essence of India for the Gold Star award in 2016 and the Mass Cultural Council awarded it to us. Essence of India was the event of the year in 2016.

After two successful collaborations with China and Pakistan in the last two years,  this year we are collaborating with Bangla Desh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. We will share the stage for performance and will have the culture booths to showcase the traditions of the participating countries in an effort to create cultural bridges between the communities that live mostly unnoticed among us.
 
In 2016 our highlight was the game of Cricket between India and Pakistan, this year our highlight is a magic show. Our kite booth is ever popular and back again this year, and so are several art, craft, culture, henna, jewelry and spice booths. There will be a variety of ethnic foods to purchase.
