Venue: Christ United Methodist Church

Ananda Mela is the first of the series of events that Prayas PDX has lined up for 2024. This "mela" or fun-fair is a celebration of cuisines and culture across Bengal, other states of India, as well as Nepal. Following the huge success of the event last year and a heartening response from all of you, this year we are excited to host a bunch of talented local vendors, including Henna artist and Culinary artists who would present a diverse variety of food ranging from Kolkata street food, delectable sweets, lip-smacking biryani, succulent Nepalese momos, and delish chaats, snacks & Indian fusion food. We have also planned an afternoon of fun games and activities for kids and adults. Details to be published soon!


Please join us in this celebration as we strive to unite communities through food and heritage in the greater Portland Metro area.
