What is Sri Lanka Day ?

Sri Lanka Day is an annual one-day event presented by Sri Lanka Foundation at the world famous Third Street Promenade of Santa Monica, California showcasing Sri Lankan musicians, dancers, food and businesses. Since the first event in 2006, Sri Lanka Day has grown to become the largest event promoting Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan culture in U.S.A. In 2010, Sri Lanka Day attracted more than one hundred thousand visitors.

Third Street Promenade is a pedestrian only street that is world famous for its shops and restaurants. The location of Third Street Promenade in the upscale City of Santa Monica attracts visitors from other wealthy neighboring areas such as Brentwood, Bell Air, Malibu and Beverly Hills. Visitors to Third Street Promenade spend more than $1.2 billion annually and the top two reasons for visiting the Promenade are shopping and eating.

A stage near Broadway has performances from 10.00 AM to 10.00 PM, while more than twenty booths along the Promenade offer the best and most unique Sri Lankan foods, goods and services to the visitors attending Sri Lanka Day.

At 4.00 PM, the "Pageant of Lanka" parades through the Promenade with beautifully dressed Sri Lankan performers and theatre elephants. There will also be a Costume Parade with traditional and colorful Sri Lankan clothing.
