CF Markville Celebrates Diwali from October 28th to 30th

CF Markville is inviting the community to experience its Diwali festivities taking place from Friday, October 28th, to Sunday, October 30th. The three-day showcase features culturally inspired art and food sampling in honour of this ancient, and most widely celebrated Hindu festival.

“As the community continues to grow and diversify, we are constantly looking for ways to introduce exciting, relevant and timely experiences for our guests to enjoy," said Daryl Clemance, General Manager of CF Markville. “In addition to being a retail destination, we are committed to bringing the community together to experience new traditions. We encourage families to join us for the Diwali holiday to celebrate the spirit of togetherness.”

To honour the Diwali tradition, consumers will be treated to a variety of Diwali treats and have access to interesting details about the holiday posted throughout the shopping centre. CF Markville has commissioned a Rangoli artist for the weekend to create one of Diwali’s most loved traditions, Rangoli art, in property. Over the course of three days, the artist will create a unique piece of folk art which is commonly drawn with colourful sand, rice powder or flower petals. The geometric and floral patterns are thought to bring luck and are commonly displayed during celebrations. This intricate artwork will be on full display on October 30.
