This will be a magical evening. The festival and "community dessert party" start at 5:00pm in the Fairhope Community Park!

Family friendly games, activities, and Bollywood music will continue until 7:00pm.

No ticket or admission required to attend the festival!  Children of the World will provide family activities, entertainment, games, and drinks for the dessert party.  Attendees are asked to bring any seating they wish to use (chairs or blankets) and a dessert to share. 

All are welcome to come and have a blast at this magical family event! Please continue to read below.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.

John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

At the festival, there will be an opportunity to take part in an activity that demonstrates how impactful your "light" is in this world. Specifically, families will be able to see how they impact our community. This will be beautiful and meaningful! We can't wait for you to see!

We will have Children's "glow kits" available to purchase for $5.00 each.

Kits include: 1 glowing helium balloon, glow stick necklaces & bracelets, and 1 ticket for henna. Individual glowing helium balloons and tickets for henna will also be available for $3.00 each.

ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to support the Valdez Family as their daughter fights against Childhood Cancer. To learn more about how you can support Ankitha and her parents, please visit the links below:

John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”


Dessert Party - Last year our community came prepared! It was incredible to see what everyone brought.  We saw goodies of all types (American Cuisine, Indian Inspired, Store Bought, and Homemade)

This year we are adding a little competition! Prize bags will be given for the "best looking" and "best tasting" desserts of the night.

Whether you want to bring beautifully decorated cookies or a bag of Oreos - all will be welcome and all will be enjoyed! Don't have time to make or pick up anything? That's fine too! There will be plenty to share.  Just come join the fellowship with your community!

We had such a blast last year! And plan to have even more fun this year!
So, gather your friends & family, enjoy a little Indian culture, and witness how your family's light makes an impact.

We hope you plan to join us again this year!
