Brisbane Holi – Festival of Colours
Brisbane Holi: Festival of Colours (5th Annual)
Here’s the official announcement of the 5th installation of our favorite event Brisbane Holi 2021 (presented as a part of Brisbance City Council’s BrisAsia Festival) and let us promise you this – this year the colors will be extra vibrant and the atmosphere extra joyful!
Holi is one of the most widely and also the most enthusiastically celebrated festivals of India. When this festival is around the corner, people from all parts of the country, belonging to different religions, communities, and walks of life choose to forget their differences as they come together to share their happiness and joy in the spirit of inclusiveness by putting colors on each other in the most playful, cheerful manner possible.
And that’s exactly how we’ve been celebrating the ‘festival of colors’ here at the Indian Cultural and Sports Club Inc, Brisbane, as a part of the BrisAsia Festival from the last 3 years now. So many communities from Australia as well as from Asia (and not just India) join hands each year to celebrate this gala of lively energy topped with moments of harmony and unity by participating in events like – music and dance performances, sports events, competitions, food festivals, and the vivacious play of Holi itself.
Brisbane Holi’s 4th year celebrates the spirit of inclusiveness by inviting everyone to be a part of this multicultural festival which will also act as the most perfect platform to build stronger relationships between various communities from across the continents.
“Let’s celebrate each other’s vibrant cultures, festivals, and traditions.. Let’s celebrate Holi.. Let’s celebrate this joyful phenomenon we call life!”
