Festival of Chariots comes to Joburg!
And it's free and open to all
Posted: Feb 25 2018
For the first time ever, JHB CBD will host its own Festival of Chariots.
The event will take place in Newtown this 10 March 2018. The Festival of Chariots is an international festival which has taken place throughout all corners of the globe, in over 100 countries including South Africa.
The Festival of Chariots, or Ratha Yatra as it is traditionally known, is a ‘celebration of love which envelops the community’ – marked by a conflation of colour, credence in chorus, energised dance and infusion of multicultural splendour. The original festival has been held in Jagannatha Puri, India.
Access to the festival is free and includes:
- A Chariot Parade (10 March 2018) – Shuttle service arranged from the Sci-Bono grounds (where safe parking will be available).
- Engaging conversations about ancient philosophy
- A free vegetarian meal
