Asha Stanford's Holi 2013
April 6th and April 7th, 11 am - 3 pm, Sandhill Fields, Stanford
Different experience! 2 days full of fun! Deserving cause!

Yes, you can get all that at one event! Asha Stanford brings you the best way to start off Spring 2013 Holi, the biggest communal celebration of the eponymous Indian festival in the Bay Area!

Holi is all about celebrating the colors and vitality of spring, with family and friends and we figure about 5500 lbs of food-grade colors and tons of water should be enough to get you started with the celebrations! Your first time at Holi? Make sure you read below on how Holi works! Come join us in this day long party, and help us raise funds for education projects for disadvantaged children!

No alcohol is allowed at the event.

Make sure you get your printed tickets with you. Contact the Stanford Ticket Office here in case you haven't received your PDF tickets with barcodes on them

Field Map:

Free admission for kids under 5.

Proceeds from this event will go towards supporting primary education for underprivileged children in India.

Holi patrons, thanks for your support! We have noticed many people exchanging tickets unofficially between the two days. Please note that neither Asha Stanford nor the Stanford Ticket Office is responsible for these transactions.

All barcodes will only allow single entry (2 day tickets are single/day). So, if the person giving you the ticket chooses to attend the event and gets scanned before you do, you risk being barred from entry.

We also discourage purchasing tickets for prices higher than official since the event is a charity fundraiser and it shouldn't be taken advantage of for personal gains, when it is being held to support the education of underprivileged children.

What am I in for?
