New Vrindaban’s Festival of Colors is back on Saturday, September 17, from 12-6 p.m. at the Palace of Gold in Moundsville, West Virginia. Inspired by the Indian cultural festival of Holi, this family-friendly event aims to build harmony by uniting people of different colors, nationalities, cultures, backgrounds, and races into one human family. Guests can expect a fun day for all ages: color throws, live music from various artists, dance performances, vendors, and outstanding Indian street food.
The celebration is held on the beautifully landscaped grounds of Prabhupada’s Palace of Gold which CNN calls “one of the eight religious wonders to visit in the USA.” In addition to the architectural wonder of the Palace (which will be offering discounted tours at the Festival), guests can explore the prize-winning rose garden, a lovely lotus pond, two swan lakes, hiking trails, or visit with the peacocks and meet our friendly cows.

Full Package: $30 online or $35 onsite. This package includes one admission, three bags of colored powder, a commemorative t-shirt, and delicious ‘thali’ lunch.
