One of the foundation’s most significant events is “Sri Lanka Day”. It is an annual celebration and tribute to the culture of the Sri Lankan people.
In coordinating the event “Sri Lanka Day” the foundation seeks to inform the public about their country and its customs. The foundation also aspires to bring generations of Sri Lankans together as a community, to pass along history from one generation to another.
The event “Sri Lanka Day” will take all who attend on a short trip to Sri Lanka through traditional foods, music, dances, art, and theatre. Attendees will listen to the echo of handmade drums each with an individual tone. They will experience a visual feast of the vibrant costumes, colorful clothing and ornate jewelry.
Participants can explore the spices and aromas of curries and traditional sweets while being captivated by dancers and performers. On this “Sri Lanka day” event Children and adults alike will revel in the Kandy Perahera the famous Sri Lankan parade that features theatre elephants of equal size to real elephants. All these experiences can be enjoyed without ever leaving California.
