About this Event

The Festival of Colours, also known as "Holi", is a great day out where coloured powder is thrown over friends and family! The event will be held at the Torquay Front Beach Foreshore, The Esplanade, Torquay, VIC, 3228.

A good part of the day will be spent throwing colours. At regular periods we will alert you to throw the packets of coloured powders. For best results, come with a white T-Shirt!

During the day we will feature LIVE music, face painting, meditation and free fortune card reading for your entertainment. For the younger ones, there will be jumping castles and kids activities.

This is a cultural event celebrating the oneness of human spirit based upon an ancient festival which finds its origins in India. The God of play, Lord Krishna, would engage in the throwing of coloured powders with His cowherd friends. The festival signifies the blooming of colours which manifest with the arrival of autumn and spring.

In order to attract the public to an event which celebrates peace and harmony between humanity and nature, the residents of Hare Krishna Valley are staging this festival for the community of the Surf Coast Shire. This event provides an opportunity for the broader community to discover the way of life of the members of Hare Krishna Valley, and to join them in the celebration of a time honoured festival.

We will also have heaps of delicious vegetarian/vegan meals, snacks, chai and drinks available on site. Come with a smile and an empty stomach! Checkout our Facebook page to see all the photos and fun we had last year!

The Festival of Colours is proudly sponsored by the Surf Coast Shire and the Victorian Multicultural Commission.
