Diwalicious is a free festival in Markham to celebrate Diwali. Known as the festival of lights, Diwali signifies the victory of good over evil. The tradition of lighting earthen lamps followed on this day serves as a promise to turn darkness into light and spread peace and prosperity.
There is free admission and thousands of people are expected to attend. Diwalicious will feature delicious festive foods, including food vendors such as Adrak and Khazana. Mahalaxshmi Iyer, Kathak Rockers and many more will be performing throughout the event. The event will also feature a fusion of Canadian art and Indian culture, and a recipe competition, Recipe Dil Se.
The festival is organized by Indo Canada Arts Council, a federally registered not-for-profit organization dedicated in promoting and recognizing the various cultural and art forms between India and Canada.
