Sri Lanka Day 2021 – Cultural show organised by the Sri Lanka Foundation (US)
Sri Lankans often refer to themselves as “Lions or The Lion Nation”. One of the reasons they do so is due to the obvious lion symbol on the country’s flag. The other reason is less known but much more meaningful. The lion has frequently been linked to words such as courageous and proud. The Sri Lanka Foundation is a foundation dedicated to the preservation of Sri Lankan culture. It strives to exhibit courage and pride in their charitable work and events.
One of the foundation’s most significant events is “Sri Lanka Day”. Every year the foundation works diligently to bring the sights, tastes, colors and general feel of Sri Lanka to spectators who gather in one location from all over California. It is an annual celebration and tribute to the culture and heritage of the Sri Lankan people. In coordinating the event the foundation seeks to inform the public about their country and its customs. The foundation also aspires to bring generations of Sri Lankans together as a community, to pass along history from one generation to another.
