It is a time when social barriers collapse, and all are united in joyful celebration. It is a time to throw vibrantly colored powder at your friends and strangers, and dance together as one huge colorful mass of beautiful people.

Since 2012, Festival of Colors: Holi NYC has showered Brooklyn each spring with an ecstatic display and abundance of color, music and glee.  This year, on May 9, 2015,  the festival will once again grace our fair borough, continuing a tradition which originates with the Hindu holiday known as 'Holi'. In an expression of celebration, Festival of Colors is indeed a vibrant way of welcoming spring, bringing music and song, dance and pure enjoyment.  Festival of Colors: Holi NYC in 2015 will once again offer us a spectacular event, with even more color, live and diverse musical programming, and an expanded selection of local and unique food vendors. As an event appealing to widely diverse audience who travel from up and down the Northeast corridor, the time has arrived to plan your stay and soak up this truly magnificent event..

More About Holi In India

Holi, an ancient Hindu religious festival, is best known as the festival of colors or the festival of love.  Primarily observed in India, Nepal and other regions with significant populations of Hindus, it has started to become increasingly known and popular across the world.  Traditionally, the powdered colors that give the Festival of Colors its 'color' were made up of medicinal herbs, hence sharing a benefit in the ritual of  throwing these colors at one another.  Now, a completely safe and washable organic powdered color dust is or "Gulal" is used, giving the stunning and vibrant tones to the event throughout.
