Color your life and throw your worries to the wind! Holi Festival of Colors is an all-ages family friendly outdoor music and arts festival that brings people together in celebration of renewal, Spring, love, unity, community and the human spirit. Hosted at the Hare Krishna Farm for the fifth year in a row, this thousand-year old cultural festival originating from India has taken up roots in North Central Florida, spreading joyfulness to people across cultures and across the world.
The festival starts at noon on Sunday, April 2, 2017, and lasts until 4 pm. Live bands will be playing uplifting music from kirtan to folk, pop, rock, soul and EDM. There will be lots of dancing, singing and vegetarian food. Color throws every half hour. Children’s activity tent. Crafts vendors. Free Admission. Parking $10.
|Be prepared to be covered from head to toe in a rainbow of colored powder. Dress accordingly. Bring cash for parking, colors, food and drinks. See FAQ below for details.
There’ll be a countdown to a group color throw every half hour from 12 noon through 4 pm. Bring sunglasses, bandanas or dust masks to cover your nose and mouth during these times to minimize breathing in corn starch. If you’re asthmatic, stand off to the sides. Don’t wear contact lenses, bring glasses instead. (We’ll have running water close by should you need to rinse your eyes.)
Please keep children supervised at all times, especially during color throws. There will be a children’s activity tent.
Do not throw colors into people’s eyes or mouths. Instead, gently sprinkle colors onto other festival goers and ask if you may smear some on their cheeks, neck, shoulders, back or arms.
Live bands will be playing a selection of good music throughout the event. Be prepared to dance, dance, dance, and sing along.
Bring a change of clothes, a plastic bag to store your colored clothes, and a sheet or plastic cover for your car seats for the way home. Please read the FAQ below for more info on what not to bring. Don’t forget your radiant smile and get ready to have a whole lotta colorful fun!
