CULTURAL EVENING
 

Durga Puja Franken Team thrives to give you the best of cultural evenings possible with great performers from across Franconia and beyond. Since the event is open and the capacity of the hall is limited, we request all to be there before time and enjoy the cultural extravaganza. We especially request each and every parent to take care of their kids while the performances are in progress and allow the performers and audiences to enjoy the performances alike. Sangam Indisches Restaurant will be serving dinner at very reasonable rates on both the cultural evenings. The dates to be saved are 19th and 20th October. Besides Cultural Evening we have arranged for various fun games and competitions on 20th Oct during the day time. The various competition details can be found below.
