Whether you’re going to be celebrating Diwali or you just love the Indian Culture, the Diwali India Lifestyle Festival being hosted at Montecasino from the 7th to 16th September – will be an explosion of colour, taste, sound and texture, showcasing wares and delights from local and international exhibitors.
Although the traditional festival of Diwali is only taking place in November, it’s never too early to get your shopping done.
Boasting the very best in international Indian clothing, cosmetic jewellery, make-up, silk carpets, homeware, astrologers and more, walk the lanes of “India” and take in the sights and sounds of true Indian traditional and contemporary fashions, foods and accessories.

You’ll find intricately detailed and exquisite saris, perfectly cut and styled Punjabis or with wedding season upon us too: the bridal gown of your dreams in the shopping MELA.
There is something for the whole family, including camel and rickshaw rides and a kiddies cricket area. For the adults, a lounge decked with low tables, soft cushions, traditional hookahs and a vast array of flavoured tobaccos.
