Parramasala To Play A Leading Role During Modi’s India Tourism Week

Parramasala To Play A Leading Role During Modi’s India Tourism Week

NSW Premier Mike Baird and Minister for Multiculturalism John Ajaka today announced details of the much-anticipated 2015 Parramasala Festival.
Mr Baird said the event celebrating Indian and South Asian customs, traditions and cuisines would be held from Friday 16 October to Sunday 18 October in Parramatta.
“I’m also pleased to announce this year’s festival will be celebrated in conjunction with the inaugural Indian Tourism Week, announced by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Australia last year,” Mr Baird said.
“Mr Modi became the first Indian leader to visit our nation in almost 30 years and we’re delighted to continue strengthening diplomatic relations with India through events that celebrate our cultural ties, such as Parramasala.”
Mr Ajaka said Western Sydney’s annual festival of contemporary Indian culture had been identified as the best time to host the first ever Indian Tourism Week.
“Parramasala is a much-anticipated annual event that attracts more than 50,000 people each year to Parramatta in Western Sydney,” Mr Ajaka said.
“Now in its sixth year, this year’s event will place greater emphasis on everything we love about India – its customs, cuisines and colours – in one jam-packed weekend.”
Parramasala will be held alongside the inaugural Indian Tourism Week, established by Prime Minister Modi to build cultural ties between NSW and India.
Further details about this year’s festival and Indian Tourism Week will be released over the coming months. For more information visit: www.parramasala.com
