Known across the globe as India’s most energetic and vibrant holiday, the ‘Festival of Colours’ or ‘Holi’ (which translates to ‘Colour’ in Hindi) celebrates the arrival of Spring in a truly spectacular fusion of colour, culture and creativity.
Blues, greens, purples, reds, yellows, and pinks come together in a high spirited, fun-filled party atmosphere. Thousands of people from across the city and beyond come to our purpose built arena for a vivid, powder-throwing multi-colour frenzy. A great chance to have some fun, make new friends, and celebrate together as one.
“I think this sort of event is great for Belfast…a celebration of diversity which is open to all is essential in moving to a united community and making Belfast truly a shared space for all”
We no longer deliver Festival of Colours in this format. The event is now delivered as part of the Belfast Mela.
Bring an energetic burst of colour to the city with an Indian Spring time tradition
