About Diwali Festival
On Saturday, 7th October 2017, the City Square (Stadsplein) of Amstelveen will be transformed into a colorful Indian festival area, where young and old can enjoy (free of charge) a festive programme. During this day visitors can learn about many Indian customs combined with a Dutch flavour.
At this festival you will enjoy a wonderful stage programme, with a variety of professional dance and musical performances.
The Diwali festival will start with a festive and musical performance at 12:00 by "Colourful greeting from India". This performance will move from the shopping center towards the festival tent.
Right after the musical opening of the event the Vice Mayor of the City of Amstelveen Ms. Maaike Veeningen and the Chairman of Foundation Diwali Festival Mr. Rajiv Mehra, will be part of a traditional Indian ceremony with Indian and Dutch children, which will be the official opening of the event.
