Celebrate Holi at the Seaport

March 18, 11 am2 pm.

Story time. Colorful puppets and powder play. The annual Holi celebration lets you shake off the winter blues and celebrate the arrival of spring. This year, the Seaport in partnership with the Culture Tree and the South Street Seaport Museum invite you to join the celebration of the traditional Indian festival of colors. Bring the kids, bring your friends, for story time, puppet-making, dance workshops and a puppet show and, of course, spirited fun with brightly colored powder.

Visitors can also sample traditional Indian cuisine enjoyed during this annual holiday, purchase Holi’s signature colored powders and shop at the outdoor Indian market on Front Street featuring nearly a dozen Indian owned-businesses, including Tagmo, the Seaport’s own Indian restaurant.

In celebration of Holi, guests are encouraged to wear an all-white outfit to help amplify the Powder Play experience.
