Colorful and traditional Indian festival HOLI is coming back this March 31, 2019 to Paris Jardin d'Acclimatation. Let's celebrate with joy and good mood thanks to many events.

This year, Paris Jardin d’Acclimatation celebrates again HOLI, the color festival on Saturday March 31, 2019. Cancelled last year in order to prevent from creating a duplication with the festival of La Villette, the celebration is back this year for children's and adults' joy.

Have you heard of HOLI? This is one of the greatest traditional festival in India, and maybe the most popular one, the happiest and the most colorful! To celebrate the end of winter and the first days of springs, millions of women and men throw colored powder to each other, have fun, sing and dance with traditional music.

In 2017, the celebration at the Jardin d’Acclimatation transported us. We're glad to welcome this new edition. Set up under the patronship of SE. M. Vinay Mohan Kwatra, the Indian ambassdor in France and in partnership with the GOPIO (Global Organization of People of Indian Origin) association, a fantastic program awaits...

On the menu:
