UW Holi Festival 2017

ISA UW, SASA UW, and ASUW Asian Student Commission are proud to present: UW Holi Festival 2017!

When: Friday, May 12th, 2017 - beginning at 4:00pm

This event is open to everyone, but we will have limited powder availability, so first come first serve! There will be a small fee

of $1 per bag of powder, which can be paid at the event, through cash or venmo.

-------------------------------

Popularly known as the “Festival of Colors,” Holi originates from Hindu mythology and is a celebration of the defeat of the evil demon, Holika. To celebrate this occasion, people all over the world throw colored powder at each other to represent protection from evil. The different colors also signify unity amongst all individuals and the deconstruction of boundaries. Today, Holi is observed at many college campuses across the country, and SASA, ISA, and ASC are so excited to bring it to the UW yet again!

ATTIRE: As traditionally worn throughout South Asia, we would encourage you all to wear WHITE clothing that you won’t mind getting dirty, as the colored powder sticks onto clothing pretty well. Holi powder will also show up best on white, especially in photos. These recommendations also apply to shoes, so please consider wearing flip-flops, crocs, or sandals, instead of sneakers or running shoes!
