2019 Holi Celebration

Saturday, March 23

The Washington State Parks Folk and Traditional Arts Program invites the public to celebrate spring at the 2019 Holi Celebration — the Festival of Colors — at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah. The free annual event, which takes place at the park’s kitchen shelter, will include a Bollywood DJ, traditional music and dance and family-friendly activities sponsored by the Urban Wildlife Refuge Partners. Colorful, environmentally friendly paint powder and vegetarian Indian food will be available for cash purchase. Holi, an ancient Hindu spring festival, is also known as the Festival of Colors or the Festival of Love. Festivities often involve people splashing or powdering their own or their companions’ skin and clothing with vibrant dyes. This carnival of colors is a special time, when participants of all ages, genders, classes and castes come together to socialize and say goodbye to winter. A Discover Pass is required for those attending the festival by vehicle.
