Welcome to The Calcutta Club USA. We are a unique organization whose members are passionate about the city of Calcutta, its locale, language, lifestyle and literature. Just as the original Calcutta club was founded as a platform for the British and Indians to meet on equal terms, the Calcutta Club USA thrives in stimulating bonhomie, warmth and acceptance among its diverse members. The nexus of friendship and respect binds every member of the club. The club's events are mostly internal but we also organize three major annual public events - The Calcutta Club Literature Fest (Sanskriti), Caleidoscope Cine Celebration and the CuisinArt Live Culinary Contest and Art Sale.
Calcutta Club USA has organized several visible concept events since its inception in January 2015. The club was recently featured in The Beacon newspaper which succinctly covered the organizations goals and accomplpishments. For a very brief slideshow of the events, please click here.
Thanks for the record turnout at our recent Cuisinart Culinary Contest! Like all our public events, the attendance at Cuisinart has been soaring over the past three years since the club's inception.
Our next public event is Sanskriti 2018, the fourth annual book fair and lit fest, on June 23rd, Sat, 12 - 5 PM at the Parker Damon building in Acton, MA. This is a unique event across North America to promote authors of Indian origin and their works. The event draws intellectuals, literati and book lovers from across New England and beyond. Please save the date - details and registration information available here.
