The information below will guide you through the registration process.

  • We encourage participants to perform in only one act. Balvihar Invocation will

    Reach out to MIAA cultural committee if you have any special requests.
  • Kids under 5 are allowed ONLY in a group performance with other kids and with
    specific approval from the MIAA cultural committee.
  • Solos and duets will have a time limit of 3 minutes. Group acts with more than
    two participants are allowed a maximum of 5 minutes.
  • Within 48 hours of submitting your registration, you will receive an email
    confirming receipt of your registration. Contact Maithili Shankar
    (  or Priyanka Pandey (nagashetti.priyanka@
    if you do not receive it.
  • Choreographers are responsible for getting their group on the stage well in time
    and coordinating with the backstage/hall management team.
  • Sign Up Genius registrations: Marin Utsav is completely volunteer driven. To
    keep our costs down, we have adopted a volunteer model similar to kids sports
    leagues. One member of each participant’s family will need to volunteer for the
    MU event. Families can opt out of volunteering by paying $50 to ‘Marin Indian
    American Association. This will help offset the cost of hiring outside help. Your
    act will not be confirmed until every participant family signs up for a volunteer
    slot/pay the opt out fee.
  • The person registering the act is responsible for coordinating the sign-up genius
    activities with your participant families and send the list of the sign-up genius
    activities signed by your group.
