The Festival of Colours is back! Due to growing popularity over the last several years, 2019 will see the event again celebrated at Barwon Park Mansion, 105 Inverleigh Road,Winchelsea 3241; allowing more people to enjoy the colour and excitement of the day. Bring your smile, an open heart and a white t-shirt for best results.
Every hour in front of the main stage we throw powdered colour into the air with family and friends. Colour springs from our hearts and rains from the sky as we dance and sing together! Meet people, enjoy the stage entertainment, try meditation, have your fortune told and soak up the festive atmosphere. This fun and relaxing day is a family friendly event, including a kidz zone for the younger ones. Super delicious vegetarian/vegan food will be available for purchase all day.
The Festival of Colours is a cultural event celebrating the oneness of human spirit, and is based upon an ancient festival which finds its origins in India. The God of play, Krishna, would engage in the throwing of coloured powders with His cowherd friends. The festival signifies the blooming of colours which manifest with the arrival of autumn and spring. In order to celebrate peace and harmony between humanity and nature, the members of Hare Krishna Valley are staging this festival for the community of the Surf Coast Shire and beyond. This event provides an opportunity for the broader community to join them in the celebration of a time honored festival.
On site parking is $10 per car. Coloured powder is $5-$10 per person. Food is $5-$10 per person. This event is alcohol, drug, smoking, anger and meat free!
Look forward to seeing you all in the clouds of colour on the day!
