The India Society of Southern Arizona (ISSA) is bringing the Diwali Festival to the St. Philip’s Plaza for a night of food and drinks from 5 – 10 p.m. on Saturday, November 17.

The evening of delectable food and drinks is part of the week-long multicultural celebration for the Festival of Lights, and will feature food from locals Bombole, Curry Pot, and Indian Twist.

Tickets range from $10 to $20 per person — depending on your age and/or ISSA member status.

Each ticket includes a “Dessert Box,” entry to Indian-themed plaza with access to specialty Union Public House’s drinks, and all the space you need to dance along to the live DJ specializing in the Indian and Bollywood mixes.

Additional food can be purchased from the food trucks.

Before or after you check out the Diwali Festival, The Festival of Lights will be on display in Tucson for the first time ever at the Kino Sports Complex from November 8 – January 2.

The Festival of Lights, which has been named one of USA Today’s “Top 5 Over the Top Holiday Light Shows,” is, quite frankly, over the top (in a good way). It’s going to have more than 10 million lights, acrobat shows, a carnival, 19 different food purveyors from Chengdu and China, and much more.

St. Philip’s Plaza is located at 4280 N. Campbell Ave. For more information on the festival and the India Society of Southern Arizona’s Facebook event page
