Bring an energetic burst of colour to your weekend with this traditional Indian Spring time tradition. Blues, greens, purples, reds, yellows, and pinks come together in a high spirited, fun-filled party atmosphere for all the family.
ArtsEkta’s Festival of Colours promises the biggest colour frenzy to ever hit Belfast. 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.

Organised by the producers of the Belfast Mela, visitors to the festival participate, learn and experience the vibrancy of South Asian culture and traditions through a fantastic programme of music, dance, visual arts and food.

The main highlight of the festival is the colour powder party where visitors will get the opportunity to throw brightly powdered colour among friends grooving to contemporary and classic Bollywood beats. 

ArtsEkta's Festival of Colours is the largest contemporary cultural celebration of the Indian Holi festival in the whole of Ireland, and with thousands expected to participate this is one cultural experience you will not want to miss!
