The Festival of Joy, a beautiful and colorful celebration of Indian heritage and spirituality will be Saturday, March 30, at Klyde Warren Park.
The free, family-friendly event is presented by the Crow Museum of Asian Art and Kalachandji's Dallas, a popular gourmet vegetarian restaurant.
This event kicks off Dallas Arts Month with folk dancing and musical performance, a free multi-course vegetarian feast (they’re prepared to feed 6,000-10,000), henna tattoos, kids crafts, Indian dress-up (try on a sari or turban), face painting and much more.
There is a main performance stage and 27 booths, plus 300 volunteers ready to staff the event.
The Festival of Joy, with roots in ancient India and the bhakti tradition, is celebrated in major cities across the world, including New York City’s Fifth Avenue and London’s Piccadilly Circus.
It has been observed annually for more than 3,000 years in the ancient holy city of Jagannatha Puri in Orissa, India, making it the oldest street festival in the world.
