The Bengali Community of Charlotte
We are an Indian American non-profit organization which promotes Cultural, Social, Spiritual and Charitable events connecting Bengali, Indian and American communities. We are the oldest Bengali community in Charlotte, formed 40 years ago.
Our main goal is to foster a spirit of family, friendship, diversity and community between its members through cultural activities, social events, musical gatherings and religious festivals.
Apart from other Bengali festivals and pujas, like the naboborsho, saraswati Puja, Laxmi Puja, we celebrate the Bengali festival of Durga Puja every year through three days of religious and cultural events at the Vihar Hall at the Hindu Center of Charlotte. We arrange traditional ceremonies, a place for visitors to congregate for worship, and two days of cultural performances, where lunch/dinner is provided, all provided for a fee. The event sees hundreds of visitors from Charlotte and neighboring cities & states like Raleigh and Greensboro, Virgina, South Carolina, Tennessee. Besides the Durga Puja, Probasi Group of Charlotte organizes various cultural and community events through out the year.
