MAIACA, Miami Association of Indian Americans for Culture and the Arts, will co-host Holi Miami, a celebration to welcome Spring. Holi signifies a time for unity, forgiveness and renewal in ancient India. Festival goers are invited to take part in a traditional coordinated color throw. This ritual symbolizes equality amongst all people and the rebuilding of relationships. Attendees are encouraged to wear white in anticipation of being covered in the vibrant colors of Holi. The event, scheduled for Saturday, March 19th, will take place in the heart of Wynwood.
“Holi takes on even greater significance in our world today. We look forward to celebrating Spring and new beginnings together as a community in Miami, in unity,” said Niraj Mehta, President of MAIACA.
Holi Miami will feature Indian food, DJs, performances and several kids activities. Bollywood performers, local music and dance groups, and dhol and tabla players are scheduled to perform. Food from Miami favorites Bombay Darbar, Diya and Namaste Miami will be available for sale. Bali Chainani, from the Bravo series Family Karma, will also make an appearance.
Holi Miami will be the first celebration of its kind to take place in Wynwood. Tickets for Holi are available via EventBrite. The March 19th event will take place in a lot located at 2400 NW 2nd Avenue Miami, Florida 33129.
