Deepavali, also known as The Festival of Lights, symbolizes the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.

The Swan Festival of Lights, proudly brought to you by The Annalakshmi Cultural Centre of Western Australia and Saraswati Mahavidhyalaya Institute, has been bringing together crowds of over 25,000 people from all over Australia and the world for 10 years, earning its name as Perth’s premiere Deepavali celebration.

Setting the Perth foreshore alight with sights and sounds showcasing the diversity in cultures in Australia, allowing different communities to come together and show true community spirit in a time when the world needs its most. The festival allows its revelers to try and taste the different snacks, sweets and beverages of India and South-East Asia, soothing your soul with each bite from the dishes made with love.

Run by volunteers, our drive is ‘Guest is God’ (Athithi Devo Bhava). For the last decade, our aim has been to put on a grandeur event every year, growing in numbers thanks to the support from our sponsors and our patrons.

The culmination of each night ending with the biggest showcase of all, the fireworks. Known for our spectacular finale, it provides entertainment and brings smiles to every face, regardless of age, gender or race.

With the festival only weeks away, we need the help of our biggest supporters, YOU, to contribute towards our fireworks show. Help us to make it the biggest one yet for our 10th anniversary, and know you were a part of our history, and you helped put a smile on someone else’s face! 

Any amount big or small is greatly appreciated and we look forward to serving and entertaining you under the stars on the banks of the Swan River!
