Holi or the “festival of colors” is a popular holiday celebrated all over India! Join us for this family-friendly, cultural celebration that signifies the arrival of spring, love, joy and offers us a day to connect, play and laugh with others! This festival includes a performance of classical Indian dance from the Divya School of Dance at 12 pm-1 pm, get a beautiful tattoo from our Henna Artist Swapna Pattnaik from 2:30 pm-3:30 pm, and take part in the first color throw in Salt Lake City at the Gateway along Rio Grande! We will have three opportunities for guests to throw colored powder in front of the museum starting at 2 pm, 3 pm, and 3:30 pm. Don’t want to get messy? Don’t worry! Come into the museum and participate in all of our other great Holi activities!
*Please note that after you participate in the color throw we ask that you do not re-enter the museum. You may bring a change of clothes to continue playing in the museum or shopping at The Gateway.
