The Nepali Association of Oregon hosted the Nepal Day 2011 festival on July 16 at the Sylvania Campus, the first time the organization has held the event at the college.
More than 400 attendees from around the state and southwest Washington attended the festival, which featured cooking demonstrations, music, films, authentic cuisine to eat, a taekwondo demonstration, a fashion show, arts and crafts of Nepal and much more.
The organization’s mission is to preserve and foster Nepali cultural heritage and social bonding among members of the growing community in the Pacific Northwest.
