Dear Friends

We are delighted to invite you and your family to participate and enjoy the celebration of respecting our Mother Nature and Farmers on this Harvest PONGAL Festival on Sunday 12th February 2017.

This year our indoor/outdoor celebration will showcase the colourful activities that take place during our harvest festival Pongal in Tamil Nadu including open yard Pongal preparation, Uri Adi, Kabadi, drawing Kolam (an art of life), and other games.

Pongal is an important part of Tamil Culture and tradition where we celebrate Mother Nature, the Cycle of Life and are taught to honour and respect one another.

Every year we have been celebrating Pongal with our family and friends and this year will be a grand celebration marking the 5th Anniversary milestone of Australian Tamil Academy!

We have a number of exciting games and sports with Traditional Pongal (cooked on openfire in claypot) and variety of traditional lunch served to all attendees. Events will conclude with awards to winners and the best dressed participants.
We eagerly look forward to your presence for this Pongal Festival and thank the Victorian Multicultural Commission for their support for this Festival.
