Dandenong Market and Foodie Trails invite you to join them in celebrating Diwali by experiencing Indian culture through food, flavours, arts and crafts and entertainment. The most colourful day on the calendar, the festival of lights will be held on Sunday 20 October from 9am-4pm.

The free, family-friendly event is one of Dandenong Market’s most popular – with attendance figures expected to reach over 30,000.

Come celebrate by experiencing authentic curry cuisines, trying new moves in Bollywood workshops, decorating your hands with beautifully authentic henna or even dressing up in a traditional sari before popping into the photo booth.
