Holi – the festival of colours is here! Holi started out on a small scale in Singapore. Spraying coloured water on each other. Throwing coloured powder on each other. All the fun revelry brings out the inner child in all of us. With this universal appeal, Holi has increased in popularity over the years. From one big event at the field in Kembangan to 5 separate events occurring this year, the Holi festival‘s popularity in Singapore has certainly exploded.

With 5 events celebrating the festival of Holi, where does one begin? Which Holi celebration is right for you? This guide will help you decide on the Holi festival event to attend.

 

Let’s start with the youth-centric Holi events. These attract couchsurfers, university students and the younger working crowd.holi-festival-sentosa-island-beach-party-little-india-directory

5) Rang De Holi 2014@Kembangan

Not to be confused with the other Rang De Holi event at Sentosa, this event is happening at the open field facing the Kampong Kembangan Community Club. This is the original mass Holi celebration in Singapore. They have had many VIP guests in attendance for their previous editions including former Prime Minister of Singapore, ESM Goh Chok Tong. If you are looking to party with VIPs and throwing color at them, then this is the Holi celebration for you. Also, its great that the event is highly accessible. It is directly in front of the Kembangan MRT Station (East-West Line). VIPs, fun, great food and a convenient location – all the components for an awesome Holi celebration. Visit the event page to find out how to get your tickets.
