Description

Indian Summer Festival 2016

Opening Gala: Culinary Border Crossings

with Vikram Vij and Guest Chefs


‘One of the top 10 parties to look forward to!’ – 24 hrs

Glamorous guests, fine sips and delectable nibbles curated by Vikram Vij – Indian Summer Festival’s Opening Gala is one of the city’s most sought after summer parties.

This year, Vikram has challenged some of Vancouver’s top chefs to cross a culinary border, in keeping with the festival’s ‘Border Crossings’ theme. From award-winning stalwarts like Vij’s, Café Medina, Maenam, Cactus Club and Blue Water Café to the new and hip Ancora, Bodega, Bella Gelateria and Bob Likes Thai Food, this is a gastronome’s delight.

Watch out for the lively music stage serving sonic appetizers from party favourites Surya Brass Band and international sensations Rajasthan Josh with DJ Rup Sidhu.

This is no time to be shy – bring out your finest saris and handmade bowties. Your ticket includes food (vegan and vegetarian options available) and a complimentary beverage.

Books will be available for purchase at the venue while supplies last.
