This event is being hosted in downtown Greenville on Saturday, August 24th, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. To celebrate Indian culture and heritage, IAG plans to invite Greenville Mayor Mr. Knox White, prominent council members, past IAG Presidents, Sponsors and Representatives from Media Fraternity. With many exciting additions, this year's “INDIA DAY” will feature a grand colorful parade, entertainment throughout the day emphasizing the rich and varied heritage as well as a Bollywood dance party, concluding with bright display of fireworks.
 
IAG is a non-profit organization that started in 1970, to serve as a forum for cultural and social interaction for individuals and families in Greater Greenville area that have links with (or interests pertaining to) the Indian sub-continent. IAG conducts several activities through the year that foster community interaction, provide entertainment and showcases local talent, undertake community service and contribute towards the objective of building and integrating the Upstate community.
 
​The concept of “INDIA DAY” originated with helping the Upstate community gain a better understanding of the rich and varied Indian Culture & heritage. The vision for this mega event is to help the Upstate community be part of an all-inclusive society, while contributing towards the betterment of our great country and our next generation.
 
“INDIA DAY” is one of the largest and best Indian American event to be held in the Upstate. There will be multiple activities lined up, that includes International Food Court, Indian sports demonstration, Ethnic Indian Bazaar, Local Talent show, Indian Fashion Show, Parade, Bollywood Dance Party, Colorful Fireworks and many more to be added in the activities. IAG urges all community members and business owners to come forward to support and sponsor the event. This will be an excellent opportunity for businesses to show case their brand and products in front of thousands of people, while being seen as a supporter of social and cultural diversity. This event will be open to the general public for a very nominal fee.
 
IAG, being a volunteer driven organization depends on the support and contribution from members of the community. An event of this magnitude, which aims to support local and international charities such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Vision Express, Vedic Center of Greenville, whilst bridging cultures, needs tremendous philanthropic support.
