Celebrating all things good - in the brightest way possible
Holi is a celebration of good over evil. First originating in India, the joys of Holi have now spread all over the world, and Melbourne sure knows how to host a Holi Festival that will go off with a bang.

Though many dress in white, there is no official dress code for a Holi Festival, just keep in mind that you won't be leaving without first being covered in coloured dye.

This year's Melbourne Holi Festival will be held at the Seaworks Maritime Project in Williamstown on March 4th, from 11am to 9pm. With a schedule jam-packed including music, market stalls, live performances and food trucks, every second you spend at the Holi Festival is sure to be filled with joy.
