With performances by Sri Lankan favourite Don Sherman - The Singing Chef cooking up his chicken fried rice, with some dance moves and singing, to cultural dance performances by Tiya Dance Troupe and Shashilaa Dance Troupe and Theatre and music in Tamil, Hindi and English by Consonance Entertainment, the stage is going to be a very popular area.

No celebration is complete without food and with a mouthwatering line up including kottu roti, deviled chicken, hoppers and so much more from food trucks like Taka Taka and Lankan Feast to food stalls like Drums Cafe, Raw Sip, Babajis Kitchen and Kulfi Bar it will be a Sri Lankan flavour delight.
