Association For India’s Development To Host Annual Indian Food Carnival
Penn State’s chapter of the Association for India’s Development (AID) will hold its annual Indian Food Carnival on Saturday, March 24 at the Knights of Columbus building in State College. The event will mark the group’s 21st anniversary.
AID is a charity based on the United States with branches all over the country. Founded in 1991, it focuses on raising funds to support development projects in India along with spreading awareness. Last year, the Penn State chapter raised almost $11,000 just from the Food Carnival, good enough to fund “roughly four projects in India for a year,” according to its website.
Tickets will be $15 for students, $20 for adults, and $10 for kids five and up. You can purchase your tickets here with three time slots to choose from: 5:30 p.m. to 6:40 p.m., 7:00 p.m. to 8:10 p.m., or 8:30 p.m. to 9:40 p.m.
Besides the all-you-can-eat authentic Indian food, AID is offering traditional henna tattoos, fortune telling with palm readings, and selling garments and accessories made in India.
