Description

$8 General, $5 for MAH Members, Students, Seniors & Children

What better way to celebrate Spring’s abundant colors than with a shower of pigmented powder? Come rejoice at our Holi Festival, a Hindu tradition that marks the arrival of Spring by sharing joy, community, and vibrant colors. Color the sky by throwing gulual, the holy colored powder, dance to bhangra beats, and enjoy food from Sitar Indian Restaurant.
Wearing all white (that you don’t mind getting stained) is highly encouraged. Please arrive by 1PM to receive the powder. At 1:20 we will throw it in the back patio.

Tickets are available for purchase now at the MAH Front Desk. The MAH is not responsible for stolen or lost tickets. There’s a limited number of tickets available, please purchase them in advance.

*Please note the the holi powder gulual is made from eco-friendly natural materials made from rice flour and natural dyes. We do not recommend this event for very young children or anyone with asthma.
