The Hindu Community Center of Knoxville hosted Indiafest on Saturday.
Guests were treated to taste Indian cuisine and other elements of the country's culture.
It's an opportunity for Indian people living in East Tennessee to reconnect with their roots.
"You're representing the country," said Madhu Chinthabvali. "You're showing the diversity that India's got through all these displays here, and it's an education for people that have never been to India."
