Spring Holi Festival of Colors

Brings people together in love like no other event, live bands, mantra music, food, yoga, and colors. This event, held in Spanish Fork since 1989, has been the trendsetter for all other Color Events and Runs worldwide. This is not about what religion you are -it is about all coming together to celebrate the experience of the changing seasons. With our winter coming to an end soon-it is time to celebrate the change in seasons and the coming of Spring--spray someone with color -:)

Holi powders

Holi (also called Holaka or Phagwa) is an annual festival celebrated on the day after the full moon in the Hindu month of Phalguna (early March). It celebrates spring, commemorates various events in Hindu mythology and is time of disregarding social norms and indulging in general merrymaking.

Holi is probably the least religious of Hindu holidays. During Holi, Hindus attend a public bonfire, spray friends and family with colored powders and water, and generally go a bit wild in the streets.History and Meaning of Holi

Celebrated all over India since ancient times, Holi's precise form and purpose display great variety. Originally, Holi was an agricultural festival celebrating the arrival of spring.


In 5 weeks comes HOME to Spanish Fork Utah. What started in this small Utah City in 1989 has now become a world wide phenomenon with Color Runs, and Color Fests on every continent. Still, none have matched the original for vibrancy, enthusiasm, size and sheer joy. Images and videos of the Spanish Fork event remain the GOLD STANDARD for all Color Celebrations.

    The carpooling will meet and you can decide to either drive your self or go with a group--your group should determine when you want to return as it is an all day adventure--I usually go for about 4 hours myself--wear something you care very little about due to the chalk being very hard to get out..--the food, music and entertainment is very fun and lively the whole day--:)
