Religious and Cultural Celebrations

A festival of nine nights in the honor of the divine feminine Devi Durga – also know to Gujaratis as Mataji. Sarvoday organises evenings of vibrant and energetic dancing with music bands all the way from India!

This festival, also known as the festival of colours, signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. Sarvoday celebrates this with a bonfire and throws of colour!
