United Indian Associations Inc. (UIA) is holding its traditional fair in the International Sports Complex within Blacktown city this year.
Earlier the venue for the UIA fair used to be Olympic Park, but keeping in view the large number of Indians residing in Blacktown area, the venue has been shifted to Blacktown.
“The decision to move the festival to Blacktown was taken due to the presence of a large number of Australians of Indian heritage living in Western Sydney and particularly within Blacktown City Council area”, said the President of UIA, John Kennedy.
It is estimated that about 8% of residents of Blacktown Council are descendants of Indian heritage.
“This year’s festival will bring together a range of excellent performing artists who will show case Indian cultural expressions from the largest democracy in the world”, Kennedy said.
“This festival is a great occasion for people from other cultural backgrounds to get a taste of India and we believe that this is an ideal way to experience India while living in Australia”, said the vice-President of UIA, Sunil Srivastava.
“The fair will have tens of food stalls serving different varieties of food. It will be a great outing for all”, Srivastava added.
“The whole festival will be family-friendly and we invite all to attend and enjoy a great day”, said John Kennedy.
The festival to will be held on Sunday, 17 August 2014 and gates will open at 10 AM and close at 7:30 PM.
