Sikh Center of Virginia Vaisakhi Mela Day

On Sunday April 18th, our office joined the Sikh community at their Vaisakhi Mela day.

Vaisakhi Mela day is a very important day for Sikhs and is one of the most colorful events in the Sikh calendar. It occurs during mid-April every year and traditionally concurs in Punjab with the first harvesting of the crops for the year.

This wonderful event was full of tradition, family games and delicious Indian cuisine. Most notably were the delicious Gol-Gappes, one of the most common street foods in India.

The event was well represented by small businesses that show cased traditional Indian attire, jewelry, among other traditional articles.

A great time was had by all! A special thank you to Davinder Singh and his family for the warm hospitality and invitation.

The Sikh Center of Virginia is located in the Coles District. To learn more visit their website at:
