Vanderbilt's Holi 2017 Celebration! says
Come join the South Asian Cultural Exchange and the Vanderbilt community for our annual celebration of Holi, the festival of color!
Holi is a traditionally Hindu spring festival, celebrated primarily in India and Nepal. Holi takes place over two days. The first day involves gathering in front a large bonfire, which is symbolic of burning Holika, a demon. People gather en masse around these bonfires and perform religious rituals, praying for their internal evil to leave them. The second day is a fantastic party of colors, music, and amazing fun! Join us as we celebrate the triumph of good over evil, friendship and love, and the beginning of spring with the Vanderbilt community! Regardless of where you are from or what you believe, Holi is a tradition that transcends cultural borders and celebrates community and joy! This is NOT an event you want to miss! There will be lots of delicious food, turnup music, bright colors, and FUN!

Things to bring:
1) Commodore Card:
The event is COMPLETELY FREE(!), but you'll need your Commodore Card to swipe in and enjoy the festivities! If you do not attend Vanderbilt, you are welcome as well! Just provide your email when you arrive and you're all set!

2) Clothes you can get dirty in:
Powder will be EVERYWHERE, so bring a shirt that you're not afraid to make some messy memories in!

3) Respect
Holi is a time of letting loose and having a great time, but please be mindful of others. Maintain a sense of respect for others' personal space and feel free to come to any SACE Board member if you feel uncomfortable at any time. Also, this event is open to ALL Vanderbilt students, so please refrain from bringing alcohol to the event!

This is one the LARGEST outdoor events on campus, and is gonna be an absolute blast! We can't wait to see all of you there!

We hope to see you on Alumni Lawn on April 8th!

Lots of Holi love,
Vanderbilt SACE
