A Unique Experience
Founded in 1983, the Himalayan Fair is an annual celebration of the arts and culture of the Himalayan region and its people. The Fair has grown larger every year offering a rare occasion to experience a unique Himalayan festival without leaving the Bay Area.
The annual outdoor celebration grows larger every year. Vendors come from as far as Kathmandu. The Himalayan Fair offers a wide variety of award-winning stage performers (for adults and children). The entertainment features a range of international groups performing traditional music and dance with vibrant ethnic costumes as well as some well-known world music groups like Ancient Future and Sukhawat Ali Khan.
Fairgoers will be treated to classical Odissi dance by Jyoti Kala Mandir; Bollywood dance, local Bhutanese and Tibetan community groups presenting dance and music and the traditional offerings by two local dance schools of Bharata Natyam, classical South Indian dance.
The fair also offers access to non-profit organizations and current news concerning the Himalayas and related charitable organizations.
This is a FREE event, but we encourage you to purchase a $5.00 raffle ticket for a chance to win jewelry, restaurant gift cards, rugs and our GRAND PRIZE, a roundtrip ticket to Nepal courtesy of Turkish Airlines.
All proceeds from this years raffle ticket sales will go to organizations working in the Himalayan region.
