The two day festival is filled with exceptional artists from around the world and the U.S. Come and experience this unique festival and learn about Indian classical music & culture.

Since the inaugural FOT 2017 with only 19 artists and an audience of about 200 people over the two days, the Festival has grown exponentially and will hosted 52 artists in 2022!
