Celebrate the harvest season with Indian street foods, Bollywood music, and dance at the 11th annual Houston Holi: The Festival of Colors at Crown Festival Park in Sugar Land on Saturday, March 24, 2018, from noon to 5pm.

One of the largest Holi celebrations in the nation, Houston Holi drew in more than 17,000 people last year for a lively family-friendly party.

Holi itself marks the end of winter and arrival of spring –and after Houston’s long, cold, wet winter, it can’t come soon enough.

Revelers can get blasted with color and foam, enjoy Indian folk and Bollywood entertainment, take in cultural performances, watch Dhol players, sample delicious Indian street food, go for a spin on free carnival rides, enjoy free giveaways and more.

Houston Holi Headliner

This year’s festival features headliner Zack Knight, British South Asian singer, songwriter, music composer, and producer.

Formerly known by his stage name Zeekay, Knight is best known for his 2017 single “Bom Diggy”, which is ranked top position on BBC Asian Music Network and Shazam.

“Bom Diggy” also appears as the opening song in the Bollywood hit Sonu ki Titu ki Sweety.

Festival of Colors for All Ages

The festival of colors is fun for joyful people of all ages and walks of life. It offers a full day of exciting events and performances celebrating India’s harvest season.

It will be a full day of fun, starting with the bonfire lighting of the Ceremonial Holi Pragitya to kick off the afternoon.

To maximize the colorful impact, guests are encouraged to wear white, as they’ll be doused in brightly colored powder – an organic, non-toxic substance made from herbs.

In the event of a heavy downpour, a rain date has been set for Sunday, March 25, 2018.
