    Prabasi - Past and Present!

    PRABASI is a non-profit socio-cultural organization of the Bengalis of the San Francisco Bay Area, founded in 1974. This is the largest and oldest organization of Bengalis and Bengali-loving people in Northern California. Our goals are broadly defined in our vision and mission statement. We have open communication with all our members. Prabasi also has an interesting history. To promote a feeling of togetherness, Prabasi is a membership based organization.
    Durga Puja will be celebrated at Santa Clara County Fairgrounds on Sep 30 and Oct 1, 2017.

    Welcome to Prabasi

    Prabasi is a non-profit socio-cultural organization of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a membership-based organization whose focus is on the Bengali language and culture. Prabasi was formed in 1974 and is run by an elected Board of Directors. Prabasi organizes at least four cultural get-togethers every year - Durga Puja, Kali Puja, Saraswati Puja and Anandamela. Besides it also organizes Bengali movie shows when available, annual new-year's eve parties and picnics. Prabasi is also instrumental in coordinating relief efforts when a natural disaster strikes.
