Indian wedding ceremonies are typically magnificent and choreographed events that can last for five days or more. GyaNidhi foundation brings this exciting tradition to Denver, Colorado in order to raise money for underprivileged children.
The Indian Wedding Festival takes place on July 19th next to Denver’s Civic Center Park, and offers performances, a spectacular light show, beauty pageant, Bollywood dance party, and much more. There is also a Baraat - a traditional Indian wedding procession - and at least one couple will use the procession to celebrate their union. The day promises an exciting insight in the colorful Indian culture.
Visitors at the festival can also enjoy the acrobats of the Fractal Tribe Circus, a multitude of vendors, a fashion show with bridal couture, organized by Norvan Entertainment and more. The beauty pageant will crown the next Indian beauty queen of Colorado, and the winner will represent Colorado in the US portion of the Jewel of India contest.
For residents of Denver, the fun is already starting. There are signs and billboards throughout the city, and the festival is the first Indian cultural event to have a billboard on Colorado Interstate I-25.
The rituals surrounding an Indian wedding differ greatly from Western ceremonies, and are rich in traditions, customs, and symbolism. Festival visitors will experience a lush tapestry of vibrant colors, dance, music and food.
