The Original Holi Fest

Saturday, Apr 27, 2019 at 10:00am

Tamp & Grind Coffee Shop
828 4th Street
Alexandria, LA 71301

The celebration of Spring, Life, Unity, Community, and Downtown Culture!

Unity in Diversity…Playing colors with each and every one brings a feeling of spirit without any distinction of caste, creed, color, race, status or sex. It is one occasion when sprinkling colored powder (‘gulal’) or colored water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination so that everyone looks the same and universal brotherhood is reaffirmed, just like the gumbo that is Downtown culture.

HoliFest 2019 benefits the kids of CAN (Children’s Advocacy Network)!

Indian dance, live music, and authentic food! Activities for all ages! And….

The Largest!!! Free!!! Holi Colors In Central Louisiana!!!!
