Federation of Indian Associations of NSW (FIAN) is inviting Australians from all walks of life to Holi 2019, a festival of colours and music.
The free-entry event will be held at the Prince Alfred Park Square in Parramatta, a western Sydney suburb with high concentration of Australians of Indian origin.
The colourful festival will be completely alcohol-free, FIAN claims in its flyers, and will be very much a family-oriented cultural jam.
The annual event draws more and more people with each passing year. Holi festival offers the Indian diaspora a good opportunity to showcase India’s rich cultural heritage.
Besides colours and cuisine, Bollywood would come live at the March 10 event with DJ Btrix presenting his Bollywood magic.
The event venue is not far from Harris Park which boasts of the biggest concentration of Indian restaurants in the country. A good number of visitors to Holi 2019 are expected to end up on Wigram Street to enjoy Indian cuisine that undoubtedly will be a good complement to the Holi festivities.
FIAN, presided over by Dr Yadu Singh, has a good track record of organising signature Indian events in Sydney. It’s regular events include Diwali and India Day Fairs.
Every year, Holi festival not only attracts members of the Indian diaspora in and around Sydney but also the local politicians and members of the wider Australian communities who are naturally drawn by the life-affirming colours of India and sound of Bollywood.
The programme is scheduled to run from 11am to 5pm this Sunday.
