Holi is a time-honored tradition that has been celebrated by Hindus around the world for generations. This festival marks the arrival of spring and the triumph of good over evil.

The event will showcase the diversity and beauty of Holi and offer an opportunity for people from all backgrounds to come together and celebrate.

“We are thrilled to bring the community together to celebrate Holi and share in the joy and unity the festival represents” said UPAGP president, Mrs. Ila Awasthi. “Our organization is dedicated to preserving and promoting culture and traditions of the Indian diaspora, and this event is an opportunity for us to celebrate the contributions of the immigrant Indian community to our society.”

In addition to music, dance, and the celebration with gulal, the event will feature food and delicacies from India. The event will also provide an opportunity for attendees to learn more about UPAGP and its mission.
