Mahasundari Madhavi dasi: New Remuna Dhama, ISKCON Toronto, would like to extend a warm invitation to devotees around the world to experience our 38th Annual Festival of India (Ratha-Yatra) on July 17-18, 2010! Toronto’s Ratha-Yatra has the unique distinction of being accredited by Madhuha das, the organizer of the traveling Festival of India tour, as being the largest Ratha-Yatra in North America with close to 40,000 people in attendance and a plethora of Srila Prabhupada’s books sold each year!

Pre-Ratha-Yatra Kirtan Festival!

The 38th Annual Festival of India is thrilled to announce that celebrations will also feature an exclusive pre-festival celebration, unprecedented in Toronto Ratha-Yatra’s history. Landing in Toronto from Switzerland and the UK, just days before the main events, renowned global kirtan superstars Madhava das and Gopal das will be blowing the roof off New Remuna Dhama with two 12-hour kirtans from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm on July 15th and 16th! Known for blending his native Mauritian roots with a more traditional kirtan sound, Madhava das’s kirtan must be felt to be believed! Prepare to “feed your soul” with this extraordinary one-of-a kind kirtan event!

Rocking Kirtan Down Yonge Street!
The weekend festivities kickoff with the famous Ratha-Yatra parade beginning at Yonge and Bloor on July 17th at 11:00am. The parade features three beautifully decorated chariots making their way down world-famous Yonge Street amidst ecstatic kirtan! The highlight (and most unique part of Toronto’s parade) happens when the kirtan reaches its pinnacle in the “Toronto Tunnel”. Chaos ensues as the parade cruises under a highway overpass and the resulting acoustics cause the sound levels to rocket through the roof! There’s nothing else like it – imagine a sea of devotees jumping, dancing, and singing to the pulsating beat of mrdangas and karatalas while their voices echo in the famous Toronto Tunnel! It is definitely not to be missed!

Festival of India at Centre Island!
After the vibrant Yonge Street parade, celebrations continue at Centre Island for the remainder of the weekend where there will be delicious prasadam and a stunning Arts & Culture showcase including performances by the Krishna Culture Festival Tour and dramas presented by HH Bhaktimarga Swami (entitled “Rhythm of the Soul”). Also featured at the festival are a South Asian Bazaar, exhibits, a children’s area, and much more!

Yoga Meltdown
Celebrated as a “festival within a festival”, on Sunday July 18th, the Third Annual Yoga Meltdown will present Toronto’s vast yoga community with a chance to unwind, rejuvenate, and invigorate themselves with a free outdoor yoga festival dedicated to presenting the beauty of bhakti-yoga and Krishna consciousness to all yoga enthusiasts.

Non-Stop Kirtan!
For the third year in a row, the Toronto Ratha-Yatra will also feature a “Bhajan Kutir” at Centre Island with non-stop kirtan! Kirtaneers from all over North America will gather to glorify the Holy Name! This is one area of the festival that no kirtan-lover should miss!

Distinguished Guests at Festival of India!

Confirmed VIPs include: HH Bhakti Brhat Bhagavata Swami, HH Bhaktimarga Swami, HH Candramauli Swami, Dravida Prabhu, Krsnanandini Prabhu, Malati Prabhu, Atmarama Prabhu, and many more!
