India is a land of festivals and CELEBRATIONS. ICC hosts four flagship celebration events each year. Come experience India with ICC.
In India, Holi marks the winter wheat harvest and the beginning of spring. The night before Holi, bonfires are lit symbolizing good triumphing over evil. The next day, all of India joins in a joyous color throw that unites people and brings positivity into our lives.
HoliFest 2023 returns to Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich on Sat., May 6. Join ICC for a community-wide celebration with a rocking DJ, dhol player, dancers, food vendors, henna artists, children's crafts, and color throw. ICC thanks Signature Sponsors Cafe Spice and Redfin, Event Day sponsor Greenwich Hospital, and benefactors Alka and Nik Thukral for supporting HoliFest 2023.
KITE FLYING FESTIVAL
Kite flying came to India thousands of years ago. In January, the largest International Kite Festival takes place in Gujarat. Thousands of kites fill the skies to celebrate the end of winter.
In April, 7,500 miles west of Gujarat, ICC celebrates spring with the Annual Kite Flying Festival. Kids young and old fill the Connecticut skies with kites of all shapes and sizes. ICC brings 150 kites to the festival and hosts a patang, or fighter kite, demonstration. Award ribbons are given to all high fliers. The town has music, the food concession is open and there are tables for families who want to BYO lunches.
