22nd Annual Festival of India
Sep 13 - Sep 13, Spanish Fork
Utah Valley’s Krishna Temple, located on South Main St. in Spanish Fork, will host the 22th Annual Festival of India on Saturday, September 13th from 4 pm.

After 21 increasingly successful editions of the India Fest, few people in Utah County are ignorant of the fact that, once a year, you can go to India without spending a lot of money. You can have India right in the middle, of all places, ... Spanish Fork!

Over 4,000 people attended last year’s celebration, and India Fest 2008 could be the biggest one yet, thanks to the enthusiastic increase of promotional efforts on the part of the organizers, the majestic, overlooking presence of the Krishna temple at the festival site, and a natural amphitheater which can accommodate thousands. Set around the Rajastani style, multi domed temple, the eight acre festival site will feature world class entertainment, cuisine, a gift shop, art, photography, cultural exhibits on India, a gala pageant of the epic Ramayana, the burning of a 20’ high ten-headed demon named Ravana, and spectacular fireworks.
