Kodava Convention in Dallas on Sept. 2 and 3

August 22, 2017

Dallas (USA): Traditions capture the essence of a culture, creating a bridge between generations for elders to pass on these traditions to the youth. Keeping this in mind, Kodavas of United States of America (USA) hold an annual convention to honour such traditions, attracting Kodavas from across the globe. These conventions are typically hosted in a different places each year, with the 2017 convention being hosted by the Dallas Kodavas in Grapevine, Texas on Sept. 2 and 3.

The Dallas Kodavas are represented by approximately 25 families who have elected to blend East and West cultures by presenting this year’s convention with a unique Texan flair. The group has been very active with social media promotions that include artwork from their very own Kodavas, making this a much talked about event. The current number of registrants has crossed three hundred, projecting this to be the largest convention, so far.

A pre-convention will be held on Sept. 2 with the main event on Sept. 3. The event informally kicks-off with an opportunity to meet the hosts on Sept. 1. Guests will participate in sight-seeing tours including a special tour of the biggest Hanuman Temple and the new Radha Krishna Temple with the Dallas Kodava Architect – Tim Konganda. The pre-convention will also showcase the unique Texas culture with activities like mechanical bull riding, Texas line dancing, and more.

An opportunity to support the Kodava homeland will also be presented. There will also be a Dallas Kodava 5K run/ walk event. This event supports Coorg Wellness Foundation, which supports efforts for the wellness of Coorg, its people, wildlife and ecosystem. The main convention will showcase Kodava culture with Kodava dances, skits and many other entertainment activities. More information can be seen at http://www.kodavas.org/convention.
