India Fest 2007, March 17-18, Raleigh, NC
India Fest 2007 was the biggest ever in the history of Raleigh. On a cold and windy weekend, people from all descend poured into Dorton Arena in Raleigh to view splendid performances from local artists of Raleigh. India Fest attracted more than 6500 viewers, 570 participants and 85 different performances. And one world famous artist from India. It was Saturday evening and the House was full cause it was time for Usha Uthup with a live band. Usha Uthup and her troupe visited all the way from India for a special showcase at India Fest.
Nuv Yug, the organizers of India Fest, has been organizing India Fest for the past four years. Every year, India Fest has increased attendance at a steady pace. This year's theme of "Scintillating Spices" was well arranged and enjoyed by all visitors. Liz Colt, publisher of Carolina Parent, quoted “It was a lot of fun - performances were great, food delicious and lots of shopping opportunities for music, books, clothes and jewelry”.
