WELCOME TO POWAI FEST 2017

If there is an event that touches the heart of everyone in Powai and makes sure that a slice of the pie is there for a tiny toddler and an octogenarian, it is PowaiFest. Rotary Club of Bombay Powai (founded in 1991), conceptualized and actualized PowaiFest with support from Hiranandani Group. The festival has lived up to its credo: “Celebrating life, serving communities.” The event showcases Powai’s enormous potential as an art, cultural, talent and business hotspot, commensurate with its stature as a premier suburb.

The first 3 editions of PowaiFest in 2014, 2015, and 2016, were landmark events in Mumbai and featured various art & cultural events, sports & talent contests, celebrity performances, etc. The events had huge participation not only from Powai-ites but from Mumbaikars across the city. The spectacular events saw the participation of renowned personalities from music, art & theatre too.
