Diwali, the festival of lights, commemorates the triumph of light over darkness and is a time for all to gather together and celebrate new beginnings.

AAPI Montclair’s annual Deepavali festival returns to the iconic Montclair Art Museum. This vibrant gathering honors the diverse cultural traditions of the South Asian diaspora. Spend the afternoon at the Montclair Art Museum enjoying live performances, interactive arts & crafts, learning about South Asian NGOS and Indian textiles, hearing from South Asian authors and delighting in sweet and savory bites from food trucks. With your ticket you'll also get an opportunity to explore the galleries at the museum. 


*Following our core value of inclusion, we have set general admission at just $8 for individuals and $28 for families (limit 5 attendees per family). Children under the age of 5 are admitted free.  Fee waivers are available for anyone with need.

*This event is free to MAM members! Please reserve your free tickets through the "Tickets & Donate" button. (Become a MAM member today.)

*If an additional donation is within your means, we offer our deepest thanks for helping to keep this celebration affordable for all.

We hope you can join us for this day full of light, music and dance!
