August 26, 2023
As the festive season approaches, a wave of excitement sweeps through the air, bringing with it the promise of togetherness, joy, and delicious food. The upcoming Indian festival season is a time of celebration, marked by a series of festivals that unite diverse communities across the world. One common thread that binds these celebrations together is the exquisite Indian cuisine that tantalises taste buds and brings people closer. At Namaste Village, we take pride in honouring this tradition by hosting our much-awaited Indian street food festival every winter and summer, showcasing the diverse flavours of India under one roof.

From Raksha Bandhan to Diwali, the Indian festival calendar is adorned with vibrant occasions that hold cultural and spiritual significance. However, it’s the culinary delights that often steal the spotlight. Festival food in India is unique in its appeal, with each dish carrying the essence of tradition, season and heritage. At Namaste Village, we believe that these delectable treats not only satisfy cravings but also evoke a sense of nostalgia and togetherness.
Our Indian street food festival is a celebration of the rich tapestry of Indian cuisine. Picture yourself indulging in the melt-in-your-mouth Gujiyas, the crispy goodness of papad, the wholesome delight of Khakhara, and the savoury perfection of Samosas. These dishes, crafted with love and authenticity, bridge geographical distances and make every bite a journey through the diverse landscapes of India while being in the UK.
Indian festivals are not just about food; they are about creating cherished memories with loved ones. The aroma of freshly prepared delicacies, the laughter shared over a meal, and the stories exchanged around the dining table all contribute to the magical atmosphere of the festive season. At Namaste Village, we understand that our role extends beyond serving food. We are privileged to be part of these moments that people hold close to their hearts.
In a world touched by globalisation, preserving traditions becomes even more crucial. That’s why we remain committed to presenting the authentic flavours of Indian festivals and food, free from “foreign” influences. Our dishes are prepared following pure vegetarian recipes, a practice that holds deep spiritual significance as offerings to the divine supreme (Krishna) before consumption. This is a principle we hold dear and honour with every dish we serve.
As the festive spirit envelops us in its warmth, we invite you to join us on a culinary journey through the heart of Indian festivals at Namaste Village. The Indian festive season is a celebration of flavours, tradition, and the joy of being together. It’s a reminder of the bustling streets, the honking horns, and the laughter that fills the air during these special times. Come savour the richness of Indian cuisine, experience the cultural tapestry of our diaspora, and enjoy the scientifically proven health benefits of our vegetarian offerings. This festive season, let’s unite over food, memories, and the joy that only Indian festivals can bring. From our Namaste Village family to yours, let the feasting begin!
