Diwali Festival November 15th – Festival of Light Celebration – Free! Outdoors!


  • The Huntington Beach Downtown Business Improvement District and INDARRA Modern Indian Cuisine have partnered to create a safe, socially-distant Diwali celebration, known as the “Festival of Light” in Indian culture.

    “Diwali is a joyful celebration in Indian culture and we thought this was the perfect time to introduce the Festival of Light to Downtown Huntington Beach,” said Savitur Badhwar, Owner of INDARRA Modern Indian Cuisine. The Diwali celebration takes place on Sunday, Nov. 15th from 3:00 – 8:00 p.m. with a variety of unique cultural experiences and vendors in the Surf City Marketplace located on the 3rd block of Main Street.

    Unique Experiences Include:

    • Henna artist
    • Indian jewelry and fashion vendors
    • Special menu items at Indarra Modern Indian Cuisine
    • Socially distanced dancing
    • Musical performances

    Displays and dancers will maintain a space of 6-feet. All attendees will be asked to “Mask Up!” and maintain a safe social distance from other guests. Sanitation stations will be placed throughout the block to ensure health and safety are top priorities. (emphasis added to maintain safe distance and mask-up for your protection and others)
