Durga Puja: Saturday, Oct 9th and Sunday, October 10th 2021

Chabot College Campus Map

After a five-year gap, Bay Area Prabasi is excited to go back to our home grounds, Chabot College, to celebrate our 48th Durga Puja. Due to COVID-19 delta variant surges in Bay Area, we are limiting the number of visitors to the event. This will be a MEMBER and registered guests only event. However, live streaming for the puja and local cultural event will be available for everyone at no additional cost. We encourage people to read the COVID-19 safety guidelines before signing up. Failure to comply with the guidelines will refuse the entry at the venue. The admission will be governed by campus and private securities in additional to the volunteers.

Members purchasing the guest passes also need to understand the guest pass provision is designed for out of town visitors. It is a honor system. For locals we encourage them to become a member. Limited capacity seating in the auditorium (with the social distancing and mask requirements) and we do not guarantee a seat for the guests – we will consider the members first while allocating the seats before their guests. The seats are alocated by the purplepass admin through an algorithm and we do NOT have control over the seating. Seating preferences like wheeel chair access is honored with a written letter to [email protected].

People who become members after October 2, 2021, will be unable to join Durga Puja in-person and the live programs due to Covid-safety protocols resulting in capcity restrictions at the venues, as dictated by local authorities. However, they will have access to live streaming online.
We regret the inconvenience caused.
