Deakin University welcomes all members of the Deakin uni community (and beyond) to celebrate the Diwali or Deepavali Festival at Waurn Ponds, on Thursday, 31 October 2019 from 6pm onwards at the Waurn Ponds Campus.
This year, to mark the 11th annual Deakin University Diwali Festival we have relocated to our stunning Waurn Ponds Campus. Our open campus allows convenient access to all food, activities and entertainment simultaneously, creating a true festival environment.
Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, an annual celebration that signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. It’s a joyful milestone celebrated by people across the world irrespective of their culture or religion.
There will be:
- cultural performances
- food and market stalls
- free activities and henna art
- rangoli artwork display
- spectacular fireworks display!
This is a free family-friendly community event.
Transport options available for Deakin staff and students from the Burwood Campus pending interest.
We hope you can join us for this celebration.
