Navaratri Festival

Navaratri, one of India’s major festival celebrations, is a time to see family and friends, enjoy music and dance, and seek blessings for new endeavors. Wesleyan’s 47th annual festival celebrates the diversity of Indian music and dance.

"Over its 47 years, our festival continues to widen representation, to expand the classical canon of Indian arts (and who is allowed to perform it), and to rigorously engage with South Asian culture through a creative lens," said Fiona Coffey, Associate Director for Programming and Performing Arts.
