The spring festival Holi is happening next week and we can’t wait to paint the city in bright colors! Known as the “festival of colors” this celebration signifies the end of winter and beginning of spring.
While Holi will officially take place this year on March 1st and 2nd, NYC will be celebrating all month long. Take part in the festivities with our two favorite events:
Where: Greenwich Village
When: Saturday (Mar. 3)
Dress in all white for this colorful, Holi-inspired festival and leave in a rainbow of colors! This festival is a spiritual oasis that will begin with a mind-expanding cacao ceremony. From there, you can let your inner child run loose while dancing to live music, getting messy with bright colored paints, feasting on delicious Indian food, and enjoying sound meditation.
Where: Stage 48 (605 W 48th Street)
When: Saturday (Mar. 17), Saturday (Mar. 31)
reveal your true colors with a Holi festival unlike any other! Holi in The City is a full-body experience of luxury and love. A marking of spring’s arrival with meat and vegetarian hors d’oeuvres, fully stocked cash bars with endless supplies of fun, and a powder party with an array of colors under an enclosed rooftop.
