Join us for the 12th Annual City Library Diwali Celebration! Diwali, the “Festival of Lights,” is one of the oldest and most important festivals in India. The name comes from the Indian word “Deepavali,” meaning “an array of lamps.” Because Diwali falls on the night of a new moon, celebrants light lamps to ward off the darkness and to symbolize the onset of happiness and prosperity. This year’s celebration will feature a fascinating journey through culturally- and traditionally-diverse India via songs, dances and more!

Sponsored by the Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple of Utah, the India Cultural Center, and The City Library.

Location: Main Library Auditorium
