Family-Friendly Event on Campus Saturday

Basant Bahaar Mela 2022

Spring carnival will have merchandise, food and more

If you’re looking for something new this Memorial Day weekend, consider attending Basant Bahaar Mela 2022, presented by Schoolcraft College’s Asian Students Association, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 28, in the DiPonio Room in the VisTaTech Center on the main campus.

All are welcome to this free (no admission charge), family-friendly event, which will provide a fun and immersive cultural experience.

Basant Bahaar Mela can be loosely translated to “Spring Fair” or “Spring Carnival.” Guests can shop for clothing, jewelry and home décor from area small businesses. Food will be available for purchase as well, and there will be music, games and face painting for children. A fashion show and dance performances are scheduled as well.

“The pandemic has put a huge strain on small businesses, so we want to support them by hosting them at Schoolcraft College,” said Dr. Anna Maheshwari, Chair, English Department. “Basant Bahaar Mela 2022 will provide a great way for the Schoolcraft community to experience this fun event and shop while enjoying delicious food while showcasing our College.”

Proceeds will benefit the Schoolcraft Food Pantry.
