41st India Day Parade in NYC

Beginning at Noon

From East 38th Street down to the 20s along Madison Avenue

Every August, the Federation of Indian Associations NY-NJ-CT-NE celebrates the Indian Anniversary of Independence with the New York India Day Parade. This is the largest parade outside India and a spectacular showcase of Indian culture and diversity. Thousands of people join the parade, which features colorful floats, live performances, Bollywood celebrities, and delicious food. The parade starts at Madison Ave. E38th St. and ends at E24th St. in New York City. It is a free event that everyone can enjoy on Sunday, August 20, 2023, from 12:00 pm onwards.

The parade also promotes the mission of LiFE, which stands for Lifestyle for Environment. This is a global initiative that aims to inspire and empower people to take action for protecting and conserving the environment. One of the highlights of the parade is the International Millets Food Fest, which showcases the benefits of millets as a sustainable and nutritious crop. The parade also features a sustainability fair, awareness messages, and free giveaways. The New York India Day Parade is more than just a celebration; it is also a movement for a better future.
