The Sixth Annual South Asian Festival, Sun to Stars, will be returning to Solar One, New York City’s first solar-powered “Green Energy, Arts, and Education Center” on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 2pm-10pm (in case of rain, the date will be changed to Sunday, September 11). Curated by Parul and Reena Shah, the Festival will feature a number of performers, South Asian cuisine from local chefs, Indian-style floor seating, and special children’s activities such as traditional kite and lamp making, coloring deity puppets, and a storytelling performance. South Asian and environmental non-profit groups will also be there to share information about themselves and their activities at the Festival, including the Rubin Museum of Art. This looks to be a very fun, family-oriented, informative event, and I’m sorry that I will have to miss all the beautiful music due to prior engagements. Check out the official website for more information, and let me know how it goes if you can make it!
