Holy Moly – The Holi Mahotsav Festival in Sydney

On the 21st to 23rd March, the Holi Mahotsav festival celebrates the triumph of good over bad. This fantastically unique event proves that 10 years of a community event is in full swing as you rid yourself of your old baggage. In the literal sense, you can donate unwanted household items and start the New Year with zero excess baggage.
In the Indian tradition, during the Holi days of this festival, the objective is to remove yourself from clutter and start seeing colours of joy surrounding you, especially white and pure lights.
Attracting hundreds of artists from India and around the globe, the festival taking place in Darling Harbour is apt since there’s always a flow of people and naturally, water.
You can enjoy artists and performers show their talents in Sydney, enjoy sensational Indian vegetarian foods and check out the craft stalls.
Only a 12 minute car ride from one of Sydney’s affordable hotels, Cremorne Point Manor, you can optionally hop on a ferry and a few minutes ride late, you’ll be floating to this exclusive area, overlooking the Harbour.
Whoever says the best things in life are free is absolutely correct! The festival is free for all, is a great winner for attracting families, kids, groups of friends and tourists. As an added bonus, you can experience the event first hand as a volunteer, performing at the festival as an artist or promoting and selling your ‘it really needs to go’ home merchandise.
So if you’re heading to Sydney and looking to check out a truly unique three day celebration and be part of cleansing yourself of all things excessive in life, head down to the Tumbalong Park and Chinese Garden Forecourt in the Harbour. Remember that the more you offload, the more relaxed you’ll be at the Manor, sipping a glass of wine as the sun sets, with lighter shoulders.
