Surati Holi Jersey City

Come experience South Asian art, music and culture as we celebrate the colorful spring festival of Holi! 

In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, pink, orange, violet, and more).

People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other. Though liquid colors are used in India (where it’s warm) we prohibit them, as we don’t want anyone to catch cold on account of the festival.

Call for volunteers, artists, craftsmen, performers, vendors, photographers, videographers, community partners and groups! Email events@suratiinc.com / info@suratiinc.com or call (201)360-1553/792-2650 for sponsorship and additional information.
