Festival of Joy 3rd Annual Celebration

The Festival of Joy is a yearly festival that happens in spring at
Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas. This festival, also known as Ratha
Yatra or Festival of the Chariots, is celebrated in many other global
city centers including New York’s Fifth Avenue and London’s Piccadilly
Circus, and promises to bring a vibrant celebration of South Asian
spiritual heritage and culture to the Arts District.

The event
begins in the park, with a parade procession. Participants will pull the
large, colorful chariot along Flora Street, accompanied by the singing
of ancient Sanskrit mantras and the sounds of traditional musical
instruments. After the procession returns to the park the main stage
will feature non-stop classical music and dance performances. There will
also be a variety of cultural and educational exhibits including
traditional crafts and cooking demos, yoga and meditation instruction,
face painting, mehndi (henna tattoo), traditional dress-up, ethnic
street food stalls, and a free vegetarian feast provided by
Kalachandji’s.
