IndiaFest Field Trip
Join us for a FREE field trip to IndiaFest in St. Paul! SouthWest Transit is partnering with PeopleFest!, Eden Prairie’s community-wide celebration of culture, to offer a free round-trip ride to the India Association of Minnesota’s (IAM) annual festival held at the Minnesota State Capitol grounds on Saturday, August 14.
IndiaFest celebrates the rich heritage, traditions, diversity, and culture of India. The event is open to every Minnesotan and will feature performances by Indian dance groups, delectable Indian cuisine from local restaurants, foot-tapping live Bollywood music, exhibits, a parade, cultural displays, an Indian bazaar, and activities for people of all ages!
Participants are responsible for getting to SouthWest Station, located at 13500 Technology Dr in Eden Prairie, by 10:40 am for a 10:45 am departure. Upon arrival at IndiaFest, you will be welcomed and introduced to the layout, festival activities, and schedule of events. Then enjoy exploring all that IndiaFest has to offer! The bus will depart the Capitol grounds at 2:45 pm, with an estimated arrival back in Eden Prairie around 3:30 pm. Participants must ride the bus both ways.
Space is limited to 46 people, and pre-registration is required. Save your spot today!
The bus is wheelchair accessible. Contact Molly Patil at email@example.com to reserve an accessible spot.
Please note a $5 no-show fee will be charged to those who reserve a spot and do not attend. Cancellations must be made by noon on August 12 to avoid this fee.
While transportation and most IndiaFest activities are free, you are responsible for all other expenses (food, arts and crafts, etc.).
