0 Comment
Bay Area Prabasi will be organizing this year’s Durga Puja on October 9th and 10th in Chabot college and auditorium, under the specter of COVID-19, which means we continue to evolve to operate and adjust to keep our community safe.

First, we continue to meet or exceed all requirements related to COVID-19 mitigation and management. We have updated information on our COVID page, please review these details carefully here.
Few key highlights:


We will be requiring all adult attendees and facility staff members to be vaccinated to gain entry to the event.
The following will be conducted at the point of entry:

  • Temperature Check
  • Vaccine Record
  • Valid Photo ID

Mask Mandate and food distribution:

We will require all our attendees to keep their masks on while attending the Durga Puja and/or the concert at all times except while eating/drinking outdoors.

Bay Area Prabasi will distribute food to our members in a contactless and pre-packaged manner through outdoor pods and everyone except family members or social bubbles will need to maintain a 6ft social distance while eating outdoors. No external food vendors are allowed this time.
PPE supplies will be available onsite.

Detailed Schedule

We have published the detailed Puja schedule on our website so that members and visitors can plan ahead.

Facility Guidelines

We have published the detailed facility guidelines here. Please take a moment and read through the details. It is absolutely necessary that we continue to maintain certain law and order and respect the facility.

**Due to the strong response in annual membership and the needed headcount restrictions to facilitate proper planning we may end up making the physical attendance member-ONLY (members and their guests). This is under discussion. Live streaming will be available through our social media channels for all our community members.

Kavita Krishnamurti Concert Ticket at 50% discount for 2021-2022 FY members and their guests until Sun Sept 12th, 2021 midnight Pacific time. 

If you are a 2021-2022 member- book your tickets now by clicking here.

Or, please become a member to avail of the discounted pricing on the ticketing available until Sept 12th.

Here is the detailed workflow for the members –

A limited number of concert tickets will be available for purchase to people outside our members and we are working with Chabot staff to ensure that plenty of room is available for safely distanced seating.

Last year, we were one of the few organizations which safely organized Durga Puja. It is our hope that this year will be less unpredictable and we will continue to celebrate Durga Puja and the concert together on October 9th and 10th.
