2017 New England Indonesian Festival (IndoFest)
September 30 @ 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT
The New England Indonesian Festival (IndoFest) 2017 aims to promote Indonesian arts, culture and culinary to the New England communities. Launched in 2013 by Permias Massachusetts, IndoFest has been held for the past three years at the heart of Boston, the Copley Square, and has attracted over 10,000 attendees each time. This year, for the second time, ICONE is joining forces with PERMIAS Massachusetts to bring back this long awaited Indonesian event here in Boston on September 30, 2017 at 12noon – 6pm.
The central theme of this year’s IndoFest is Indonesian Wildlife. Indonesia is home to some of the most remarkable flora and fauna on this planet, such as the Komodo dragon, the Orangutan and the Rafflesia flower.
Our team is working hard to bring you an Indofest experience you’ll remember with food, dancing, music and more. We here at PERMIAS Massachusetts and ICONE are extremely excited to see both familiar and new faces this year, so please save the date, come say hi and enjoy the day!
