Who WE ARE
Welcome to Durga Puja Franken e.V
The idea of bringing together the Bengali people of Franconia together, that took shape in late 2015, culminated in the formation of Durga Puja Franken e.V. in 2016, with the first ever Durga Puja celebration taking place in the Franconian region in the same year.
Since then, along with our annual main event, we have organised and participated in multiple cultural and social events in the region, and have constantly thrived towards becoming an organization that stands for mutual cultural exchange with all who are interested in Bengal and its culture - beyond faith, religion and nationality.
This website is our endeavour in expanding our engagement with people. Browse through the contents to know more, about who we are and what we do.
Please feel free to contact us - share your thoughts, and suggestions. We aspire to offer you the best experience.

This year's "«Grüne Art» statt" event took place for the sixth time in Fröbelstraße. As the name suggests, the event revolves around the garden, art and nature.
DPF supported the event by volunteering to setup the stalls. We also had our own Indian Food Stall, which turned out to be hit.
