India’s most widely celebrated festival is back for a fourth year in Seventeen Mile Rocks. The Holi Festival of Colours brings together people from all walks of life, beliefs and communities to unite in joy and to celebrate inclusiveness.
Happening on Saturday, the 29th of February 2020, Brisbane Holi 2020 is returning to the Rocks Riverside Park for an exciting night of music, performances, Bollywood dance battles, Matki phod competition, sports competitions, kids activities, heaps of Indian food, and colour — of course!
This event is primarily organised by the Indian Cultural and Sports Club Inc. but Australian and Asian communities are also welcome to join as part of Brisbane City Council’s month-long BrisAsia Festival this February.
Set from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the Holi Festival continues the tradition enjoyed by people of all ages. Throwing wonderful colours at each other for fun is the highlight of this festivity to foster camaraderie and build better ties with the community.
Similar to past events, the Holi Festival is expected to welcome thousands of participants this year. Guests are encouraged to purchase their colours online and onsite as bringing their own is prohibited.
As the event slogan goes, “Let’s colour everyone equal!”
