Cary Diwali Event is the outcome of a successful collaboration between Hum Sub Inc. and the Town of Cary. This event exemplifies a partnership between the Government and communities coming together, providing a great platform to celebrate diversity, facilitate
cultural exchange, and being a catalyst for multi-cultural awareness and a positive influence on the overall well-being of the community at large. It is the largest free-to-attend signature cultural event in the Southeastern United States drawing capacity crowds at Koka Booth Amphitheater with over 1,300 performers and over 13,000 attendees. The event serves as the largest performance platform for youths and adults attending various music and dance schools in the Triangle Area. The event, over the years, has gained popularity among the local community outside of the Indian population and has been able to pull individuals of various racial and diverse cultural backgrounds (such as other Asian, White, and African-American communities) to come together and celebrate.
Cary Diwali 2021 will feature some of the same unique experiences of Cary Diwali as in the years past, but with a few modifications to make the event safe for all attendees, participants, volunteers, and vendors. Come and enjoy riveting performances from local artists and dance schools, delicious food from Indian restaurants, a musical love story in primetime – “Cary” On Love Stories! And finally, a dazzling display of fireworks!
