Boisakhi Mela (বৈশাখী মেলা) - Saturday April 6th, 2019

It brings us immense pleasure to announce that this year Saikat will be organizing a “Boisakhi Mela” on Saturday April 06, 2019 to usher in the first day (“Poila Boisakh”) of the Bengali New Year (1426 Bongabdo). This event is being co-organized with the Greater San Diego Bangladesh Association (GSBA).

It will be an outdoor event in the format of a summer fair (‘Mela’) with multiple vendors catering a wide selection of culinary choices as well as traditional Bengali apparel and accessories. Food will be available for purchase only (preferably using cash) from these vendors on-site. Furthermore, we plan to have several cultural programs throughout the day performed by members of our community.

Date: April 06, 2019 (Saturday)

Venue: San Dieguito County Park (Spot #1)

1628 Lomas Santa Fe Drive

Del Mar, CA 92014

Time: 11am-4pm

At this time, we would like to invite proposals from prospective Directors interested to direct cultural programs using local talent. Some examples are:

  • Opening musical program (Poila Boisakh Theme)

  • Other musical programs by adults and/or kids

  • Dance programs by adults and/or kids

Please submit your proposals via email to latest by March 10, 2019 (Sunday) with a synopsis of the program you are planning to direct and your contact information.
