Holi Festival

The New Brunswick Free Public Library is celebrating its 10th annual Indian Holi Festival in cooperation with Rutgers Indian Graduate Student Association and New Brunswick Cultural Center Inc. Please join us for a vibrant, fun-filled celebration of the Indian Festival of colors! This program is free and open to all ages.

The festivities begin with Mehndi (Indian henna tattoo), a display of regional dresses, and crafts for children. There will then be music and dance performances, delicious Indian food, and a free raffle! Join us on the library’s front lawn (weather permitting) after the performances if you wish to participate in the Holi Color Festivity (dry colors). Please make sure to wear old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, and please understand that you will not be allowed back in the building after color play.

For more information, please contact librarian Kavita Pandey at or 732-745-5108 x20.

Grant funding has been provided by the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders through a grant award from the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund.
