Holi Festival, also known as the Festival of Colors and the Festival of Love, marks the start of spring with vibrant colors, food, music, dancing and more.


This free festival will take place at The Momentary from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, and is open to all. It’s a festival that traditionally celebrates the vibrancy of life and the love of Radha Krishna and has been observed in India for thousands of years.




What to expect at Holi Festival:

  • A Colorful Celebration: Holi pigment powder to throw and enjoy will be available for purchase (with cash or a card) at a nominal cash fee, so expect to get covered in color! The powder won’t stain and is non-toxic, but it’s still highly recommended to dress in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty just in case.
  • Outdoor-Only Event: This event will take place outdoors on The Momentary Green, so attendees should dress appropriately! The Momentary building will be open, but to protect the art on view inside, guests who have participated in the event will not be allowed indoors. Those who would like to explore the indoor galleries should bring a change of clothes or arrive early.
  • Simple Parking: E St. is now closed due to construction. Those coming to the Momentary can access the parking garage through 8th St. Those coming from downtown can access the building by taking 6th St. to the gravel lot.
  • Fun Food & Drink: Delicious traditional food and drinks will be available for purchase on The Momentary Green, as well as refreshing drinks at the nearby RØDE Bar. Paying with a card is preferred for purchases when possible.
  • What if there’s stormy weather?: Check The Momentary’s social media for updates. The event will not be rescheduled if it gets rained out.
