Festival of India 2023

The past five decades have witnessed the Festival of India blossom into one of Toronto’s most dazzling, head-turning summer events. The very first Festival of India in Toronto was 50 years ago in 1972 and although that year was modest and sweet, the festival grew with a single 40-foot chariot in just one year cruising down from St. George and Bloor Street down University Avenue to Nathan Phillips Square.

We are excited to announce that the 51st Annual Festival of India (also known as Ratha-Yatra) will be taking place on July 15th and 16th, 2023. The festival is open to the public and free for everyone.
