Diwali is a major Hindu holiday known as the “Festival of Lights” and it has been celebrated not only by Hindus, but by Jains and Sikhs as well all across India.

At Washington University, Diwali is one of the most widely celebrated and largest student-run productions on campus. The festival is celebrated with a major show in Edison Theater, with tickets selling out every year. Diwali is run by Ashoka, the South Asian Student Association, and it has been a strongly rooted tradition at WashU for the past 24 years. The Diwali show not only draws in a diverse audience, but also attracts participants of many different backgrounds, making the show an integrated experience of cultures. While Diwali itself is a Hindu holiday, at WashU it is celebrated as a fusion of South Asian cultures
