About SIAF Dusherra 2017

Dusherra the flagship event of the Scottish Indian Arts Forum is being held on 8th October 2017 on top of Calton Hill in Edinburgh. Dusherra, one of the largest festivals in India, commemorates a 10 day war between the gods and demons thousands of years ago. It is celebrated with gusto by communities with music, dance, food and a symbolic burning of the Effigies of the demons to celebrate the victory of good over evil.
This year’s cultural programme features a mixture of Scottish and Indian music and dance.

Food stalls provided by Kamasutra and Shri Bheemas restaurant based out of Edinburgh.
The event culminates in the burning of effigies and the fireworks.
2017 marks the 23rd anniversary of the SIAF. We aspire to increase the footfall to Dusherra to celebrate this occasion and Spread Indian cultural awareness and values across a wide cross section population.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for SIAF Dusherra 2017 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
