The competition has been held Memorial Day Weekend ever year, allowing it to be a three-day event focused on showcasing Indian heritage through the Punjabi dance of Bhangra and aiding in the development of a more cohesive Indian community which stretched from California to Canada to the East Coast. It's previous locations have been in Long Beach, Beverly Hills, and this year in Downtown Los Angeles.
Bruin Bhangra is a prestigious and well-acclaimed event, bringing in audiences and participants from all over North America and is associated with the creativity, originality, and vibrancy that illustrates what Punjabi culture and Bhangra is truly about.
Since its establishment in 1998, the organization has grown to create a network of over 115 alumni, who are now representing Chak De Phatte Inc. all over the world. Our founders have recently come together to create a website dedicated to preserving the history, and bringing together all the talented individuals that once played a part in making Bruin Bhangra come together.
