Cary Diwali is the largest festival of its kind in the south eastern United States and is supported to a great extent by sponsorship from the local business community of the Triangle area. We also have had national brands who associate with us through sponsorship to promote awareness of their brand to a very diverse demographic that our event attracts. Our sponsors are the reason that events like Cary Diwali are able to take place. Their generosity allows us to maintain and organize a high quality, well organized fee–free event that is open to the public.

The Cary Diwali Opportunity :

  • Free admission generates more involvement from the community.
  • 12000 plus strong local audience from the Triangle area.
