Tickets to the 2024 Holi Festival will be available for booking from 12 pm, Monday, 19 February – click here to book your tickets. The festival entry is FREE, however, due to limited venue capacity, each attendee must book a ticket.

It is a free family event featuring cultural food, drinks, activities, live music, dhol/drums, dance and DJ to entertain guests from all age groups.

Please note that the festival is a no-alcohol and smoke-free event held outdoors at the Golden Square Pool (14a Maple St, Golden Square VIC 3550) grounds – ‘Watch Around Water’ policy applies.

As the key feature of the festival is throwing coloured powder (made from herbal corn starch and non-toxic colour dye) in the air, covering all attendees in vibrant colours, we request you join the festivities in ‘whites’ and go home in the ‘coloured’ outfits.

Holi colours and a range of traditional Indian food will be available for purchase at the venue.
