The Swan Festival of Lights (SFOL) has become a key event on the Perth cultural calendar, eagerly anticipated each year by a crowd of over 25,000 people who flock from overseas and interstate and from the many diverse communities that live in Perth and Western Australia over its three day duration. SFOL has become a flagship event on the Perth cultural calendar having gained a reputation as a distinctive, high-quality event, noted especially for its inclusiveness and friendliness.

Deepavali is a festival symbolising the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. Many mythological explanations exist for this festival. At SFOL, Deepavali stands for the reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friendship, religious tolerance, and a celebration of the joys of life through the presentation of Indian fine arts and culture to the public of Western Australia while also promoting Western Australia’s multiculturalism through Perth’s rich, diverse and renowned performing artistes. SFOL has become synonymous with Deepavali amongst the Indian diaspora in Perth and is widely considered by all Perth communities and the Government agencies as a key Indian festival event for the celebration.

This year’s artistic and cultural theme for SFOL 2016 will feature the Indian State of Kerala. WA will witness a world- renowned Kathakali dance troupe, with their colorful costumes, make up and vibrant movements. Another troupe from Kerala will perform the dynamic Kallaripayattu martial arts. The festival culminates every evening with the highly popular spectacular fireworks.

Through our offerings of art, music, dance and food, the Festival honours the vivacious and dynamic Indian culture along with a myriad of other ethnic groups that constitute Western Australia’s eclectic society represented by an exquisite array of multicultural performing groups.
