India Cultural Association, (ICA) is a non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon, dedicated to cultural activities concerning India . Portland and neighboring suburbs currently boasts a thriving community of nearly 10,000 Indians, primarily in high-tech, engineering, medical, teaching, research and healthcare professions. ICA was established in 1980 and is the only organization in the area that represents all Indians. For the majority of Indians living in this area, ICA is the only link connecting them back to their roots.

ICA ‘s best and biggest event is India Festival. India Festival is filled with tastes, sounds and sights of India. Live music, dance, food and entertainment throughout the day. Admission is FREE. This festival gives the local community a glimpse of India and its subcontinent’s arts, culture, history and people.

India Festival has an estimated attendance upwards of 8,000 visitors from the Portand community-at-large.

ICA also organizes sport’s events that allow our community children and adults to participate and compete. This interaction allows for networking and sharing of community news and brings us all together. Events like Carrom, Table Tennis, Tennis, Badminton are all very popular with the Portland Indian population.

The primary objective of this association is to provide a forum for our community to participate in cultural activities. Hosting cultural events provides the added benefit of sharing our culture with Oregonians.

In the last 24 years ICA has hosted diverse and interesting events including: Visa services, Friendship Dinner, Diwali Dussera Celebration, Holi Celebration, New Year’s Party, Various classical dance shows, Miss Oregon pageant, Picnics, Sport’s events, Spelling Bee, Essay competition and many other activities.

As the Portland population from the Indian subcontinent grows, the role ICA plays in the Portland area will continue to be of great importance. Our children will look up to an organization like ICA to provide them the opportunity to learn our culture and share it with the local community

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
