India Association of Fort Myers was formed in 1987 by a handful of individuals whose main purpose was to bring families of Indian origin together to celebrate the rich culture and festivals associated with India. Today India Association of Fort Myers has a membership of over 175 families and individuals who not only get together to celebrate events such as Diwali, India Independence and Republic Day but also host an annual “India Fest” which attracts over 3000 people from all walks of life.
The Association is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is to operate as a charitable and educational organization promoting the understanding and tolerance of people of Indian origin. It strives to promote Indian culture and heritage by encouraging participation from all its members and the community, whether young or old.
The growth and success of India Association of Fort Myers can be accredited to the hard work and commitment of its members and the support of the people and businesses of South West Florida.
