Mid Peninsula

India Community Center (ICC) is the largest secular community center in North America and its goal is to make a positive impact in the community by providing social, cultural, educational, and recreational programs, thereby uniting the Indian community, and raising awareness about Indian culture in the local community. ICC welcomes all without regard to racial, ethnic, regional, religious, political or socio-economic background.

ICC is headquartered in Milpitas, California. Several events, camps, senior programs with daily enriching activities are also conducted at our Milpitas and Cupertino Centers. While Milpitas has been a good central location for years, we are aware that there are several communities of people of Indian origin, all over the bay area that are eager to enjoy cultural activities with their families in their own neighborhood.

With this thought in mind, ICC Mid-Peninsula was born to serve communities in the cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos, Mountain View, Menlo Park & Atherton. After several months of meetings and brainstorming with enthusiastic local community members, who have come forward and have offered to lead efforts towards structuring our programs, we are now delighted to announce that ICC Mid-Peninsula is a reality.
