About Diwali Fest
Diwali Fest originated in 2004 as the Vancouver Celebrates Diwali Festival, and has since evolved to become one of the largest Diwali-themed events in the Lower Mainland. What started as a one day, volunteer-driven event has evolved to the point where it is a professionally staffed festival that has become a destination event on the City’s cultural calendar.
