The Event

Colour Powder Party

Don't wear your Sunday best, we'll supply the colours, you do the rest! Join with thousands of people from across the city and beyond in our purpose built arena for a vivid, powder-throwing multi-colour frenzy. A great chance to have some fun, make new friends, and celebrate together as one. 

Live DJ, Dhol Drumming & Dance 

Ireland's first group of professionally trained Dhol drummers come together with a live DJ to provide explosive and energetic music for all to groove and move to. They are joined by ArtsEkta's South Asian Dance Academy and Dublin-based Indian folk dance group Shamrock Bhangra. 

Baby Colours 

For the little ones and their adults, we have come together with local artists to develop a sensory colour experience in a secluded environment away from the main colour mayhem. Prepare to get messy with lots of paint and colour to create your own memory of the festival! 

Colour Chill Zone 

Phew! If it all gets a bit too much our colour chill zone is the place to go. Created by TONIC Health & Wellness, the area integrates a relaxed colourful setting with sound healing vibes. Step inside our special colour pods, sit down, place on headphones and chill as you bathe in the vibrations of sound and colour. 

Holi Marketplace 

All that dancing and moving will certainly work up an appetite and we've got it covered. Treat your tastebuds and keep your energy up with a variety of delicious food from across the world. Be sure to browse and buy beautiful original works from a handpicked group of talented artists, craftspeople and makers.
