“In its six years, Indian Summer has done a superb job in building bridges between Canada and India through its promotion of the arts, outstanding writing, and high-level political discourse.”
Indian Summer Festival
The Indian Summer Festival is really not a festival at all. We say this because the word ‘festival’ conjures up something temporary, perhaps even fleeting. To all of us at Indian Summer, the festival really is a model for the kind of society we’d like to see. A society that is creative, diverse, inclusive and innovative. As the world builds more and more walls and as societies get suspicious and afraid of people who don’t look like them and think like them, we believe in the transformative power of the arts and the festival is our way of reaffirming these beliefs.
“It’s more than a festival. It’s a movement. I don’t know if something like this exists anywhere else. I wish New York had an Indian Summer Festival.”

“The Indian Summer Festival is definitely on my list for 2017, not only for the entertainment, food and fun, but for gaining wisdom.”
“Somehow, almost impossibly, Indian Summer Festival seems to get better every year. What an astonishing program!”
