Description

The “Festival of the Chariots,” known throughout India as the “Ratha Yatra” festival, has been performed for thousands of years in Puri, India and today it is celebrated in all major cities through out the world.

An interactive parade, in which people will pull three large Chariots by ropes, will begin on John F. Kennedy Drive and Transverse Drive in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park at 11am. The parade will continue down JFK Dr. and end around 1pm in Sharon Meadows on the corner of JFK Dr. and Stanyan Street. The Sharon Meadows festivities will include a Free Vegetarian Meal, Live Theatre, Music, Ancient Indian Dances, Exhibits and more.

We invite everyone to bring their family and friends to experience this extraordinary event, enjoy the sumptuous Vegetarian feast, and help pull the large chariots through Golden Gate Park. This festival is wheel chair accessible and family friendly. No drugs or alcohol will be permitted.
