Mark your calendars – celebrate color and the arrival of spring at the City’s second annual Holi Festival of Color on Saturday, March 11 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Generations Park at Boys Ranch, 2801 Forest Ridge Dr.
Holi is an ancient Indian celebration that marks the beginning of spring after a long winter and is symbolic of the triumph of good over evil. The festival will include live performances by local Indian dance groups, a DJ, food trucks, chalk art, henna tattoos, and much more! The highlight of the festival will feature throwing colored chalk (the powder is safe and non-toxic) into the air and on one another, creating a bright sea of colors.
This year, we’re looking to add Holi-inspired artists and vendors. Specifically, we are looking for those whose work or organization is reflective of the celebration of spring. This might include artwork that is grounded in the cultural significance of the holiday or utilizes bright colors in its subject matter. If your artwork or organization fits this description, please email Cultural Arts Manager Krissi Oden for details on how to be a part of the festival.
