*COLORS FROM OUTSIDE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED*
What is Holi?
Holi is a traditional Indian festival that is celebrated with vibrant colors. With its international appeal, the festival has crossed borders and is celebrated in different parts of the world. In Manhattan, we invite everyone irrespective of their religion and background to take part in the festivities and enjoy the culture, music and colors.
What do people do at Holi?
Holi is celebrated by using colored powder. People get themselves and others colored all over and have a good time with the music, dance and festivities. At NYC Holi Hai, we create an energetic ambience with groovy music and lively dance performances on stage.
What should I wear?
The colors allowed at the fest are non-staining and get washed easily. However, wear something you don't mind throwing away later. Tip: colors look best on white!
Is this for everyone?
Yes! We welcome everyone irrespective of nationality, religion or background. It is a festival where you embrace people from all over and immerse yourself in a sea of color.
Where do we get colored powder? Do I have to bring my own?
No, you cannot bring colors. We will have color stalls to buy from at the event. We use non-toxic and FDA approved colors. Unfortunately, we cannot gaurantee that yours are as safe as ours.
