Arts Council thanks community for support of Bollywood event


To the editor

On Saturday, Sept. 22, the Arts Council of Princeton hosted the fourth annual An Evening with Bollywood event at the Princeton Shopping Center. It was a magical evening celebrating Indian culture for the more than 1,000 attendees who enjoyed an open bazaar market, Bollywood dance performance and a lively Bollywood-inspired dance party to top off the night.

This event would not be possible without the generous support of EDENS/Princeton Shopping Center, Uma Kapoor, whose NachNation dance troupe delighted the audience with their live performance, and the Arts Council staff and volunteers who all worked tirelessly to ensure it was a great evening for everyone. And thank you to the community for supporting this event – the outpouring of enthusiasm was amazing to see.

Fall is a busy time for us. Some of the community’s favorite family-friendly events are coming up such as Finding the Great Pumpkin and Day of the Dead; both at the Princeton Shopping Center – and, the more than 30 year tradition of the Hometown Halloween Parade on Palmer Square. As always, these events are free and open to everyone.

The community support of the Arts Council continues to be outstanding. On behalf of the staff and trustees, I thank you for helping to support our mission of Building Community Through the Arts.

Interim Executive Director of the Arts Council of Princeton
