In collaboration with the Ipswich & Suffolk Indian Association

Join us as the community comes together to celebrate Holi, the Hindu festival of colour. Bring your friends and family together for one of the brightest celebrations that Ipswich hosts, and leave covered in a symphony of colours!

  • Free coloured powder provided from 12:30pm (when it’s gone, it’s gone)
  • Henna hand painting
  • Indian food stalls

Please feel free to bring coconuts, popcorn and grains to throw in the bonfire and most importantly don’t forget to wear old clothing if you are getting involved in the spirit of Holi!

Please be aware that this event involves the throwing of coloured paint powder. The market area will be positioned away from the throwing activity, but customers will be covered in colour and IBC take no responsibility for any damage caused by the powder.

Parking: There are several Ipswich Borough Council car parks available close to the event’s venue. You can find a full list here.

Visit the Ipswich and Suffolk Indian Association website to find out more about the ISIA.
