Step into another world and experience the exotic sights, sounds and flavors of Nepal and the Himalayas! The Kathmandu Festival celebrates the diverse cultures of Nepal, Tibet and India through traditional Himalayan music and lively dance performances. Stroll through a colorful marketplace to shop for jewelry, clothing, art, antiques and crafts. Savor mouth-watering momos and other traditional fresh-cooked cuisine. Take a virtual tour of Nepal at the picture gallery and video show.

New this year: Expanded outdoor Festival area for shopping, relaxing and dining; and “A Nite in Nepal” added, a sumptuous Nepalese banquet and cultural show on Saturday evening Sept. 15th from 7-10 pm at Sonoma Veterans Memorial Hall. A Nite in Nepal features celebrated musician and singer Sukhawat Ali Khan, banquet provided by A Taste of Himalaya, and dance performances by local Nepalese.

Tickets for the Festival are $10 per person, with free admission for children age 12 and under. Tickets for A Nite in Nepal are $35 per person, and include free admission to the Kathmandu Festival on Sunday.

At the Festival, there will be a silent auction and hourly raffles for fine dining, weekend getaways and other prizes from some of Sonoma Wine Country’s best venues. Proceeds from the event will benefit Children’s Medical Aid Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing corrective surgery for Nepalese children with birth defects, and building medical clinics to serve impoverished families in rural areas of Nepal.
