Chatpati Mela: Annual South Asian Street Festival
July 15 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Chhaya’s annual Chatpati Mela celebrates the vibrant cultures of South Asia and recognizes the contributions of prominent South Asian community leaders and institutions. Held in Jackson Heights, a historic South Asian neighborhood of Queens, the mela (“street fair” ) will showcase our diverse heritage through music, dance, and food. We view thriving communities value cultural diversity in our multi-cultural city. The event not only enlivens the South Asian community, it brings together a multi-ethnic audience to eat, dance, and celebrate our connectedness.
