About MAIYTRA

Brought to you by BMM, MAIYTRA (Maharashtrian Association of Indian Youth Together Representing America) is the world’s largest convention for Marathi young adults ages 18-35+.

Held every two years since 1994, MAIYTRA began as an effort to preserve Maharashtrian culture among Marathi young adults in North America.  Since then, it has grown into a vibrant and prolific community of Marathi young adults interested in celebrating our cultural heritage.  The conventions provide a forum for social and professional networking with other young adults who share similar backgrounds, values, and a common interest in maintaining the Marathi community into future generations.

Past conventions have been held in Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Toronto, and Cincinnati and young adults travel from all over the continent and abroad (including the UK and India) to attend.
