The Fairfield Indian group community has been celebrating Vedic festivals since 2000 as family gatherings, especially Deepavali.

Eisner and Pharasi family followed by Sharma family and Kar family along with other families took it further at a community level

In the Year 2003, the celebrations were opened to the general public also. The first Deepavali event was at Morning star studio with around 130 people.

Since 2008 the audience level went up to 400 plus and so it is now being held every year at Stephen Sondheim Center  

(Fairfield Art & Convention Center for Performing Arts, 200 North Main St, Fairfield, Iowa 52556).

Morning star studio and senior citizen hall were the initial venues of the  deepavali events, while Ganesh Pooja, Navarathri were at some of the families houses.  The Vedic city temple came in 2006 and the Devi Mandir temple in 2005. After this many of the vedic rituals were done at these two venues.

However Deepavali continued  with a colorful variety of childrens' bhajan, dance-dramas, skits, Classical, Indian folklore and Bollywood dances at the city center.

The objective of the cultural event was to give the Knolwedge and awareness of Indian cultural heritage to the children growing up in USA.
