Event Details

On Saturday, June 28th 2014 Jagannath RathaYatra or “Festival of Chariots,” which originated thousands of years ago in Puri, India, will be celebrated at Discovery Green beginning at 6:00 p.m. The festival begins with classical Indian dance performances by various renowned artists and dance schools in the Greater Houston area, followed by a traditional East Indian chariot parade, multicultural entertainment, Food Booths, Indian Bazaar and Open Air Dandia Raas.

Co-sponsored by Char Dham Hindu Temple of the Woodlands, ISKCON and organized by Masala Radio, the parade will spotlight three authentic hand-pulled wooden chariots that were crafted in India under the direction of Dr. Surya Sahoo of SKAI Foundation. After the grand success of the event last year, the festival will again be celebrated on a grand scale in Houston as it is traditionally done in India with three chariots. Festival-goers can help pull the chariots, get henna designs, enjoy cultural programs and participate in open air Dandia Raas. The event is free and open to the public.
