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 Sanskriti 2018! Like all our public events, the attendance at Boston's only Indian Book Fair and Lit Fest has been soaring over the past 4 years since the club's inception.
Our next public event will be the fourth annual Caleidoscope Film Festival, from Dec 7 -9 - this is the largest and only competitive Indian Film Festival across New England. Last year, Caleidoscope screened exciting 14 non-Bollywood films across multiple venues. Please save the dates and spread the word - festival details will be available on www.calfilmfest.org.
