Christchurch Holi – Indian Festival of Colours

Christchurch Holi is back in 2015 - bringing life, colour and fun to the central city.

This year Holi is all about celebrating the people of Christchurch. Indian-fusion performances will showcase the many different cultures in our community, joining together for one big party.

Holi is a day to forget your worries and connect with family and friends. Throw colours and dance to music from DJs Tronic Insurgence and DJ AJ. Enjoy traditional Indian games, cultural performances and festive Holi delicacies.

This traditional Indian holiday originates from folk stories, passed down through generations. Each region in India celebrates in its own way but Holi is widely recognised as a day to forgive, look ahead and celebrate with colours as a community.

Christchurch Holi is brought to you by Revel Events, the Indian Social and Cultural Club, Guruji Indian Supermarket and Ntec Tertiary Group, with the backing of Priority Communications, Tronic Insurgence, DJ AJ Christchurch, Sushrutha Metikurke Photography and All Right.

Tips for the day:
Wear old clothes as the colour may not wash out.
Wear comfortable flat shoes that you don't mind getting stained.
Bring cash to buy more colour and enjoy delicious Holi food.
Parking is limited so plan your trip before the day.
*Please do not bring your own colours. Our colours are corn-flour based, non-toxic and cosmetic grade. They are safe for children and adults.
