Holi Spring Harvest Fest; Sat. May 25th

The last two years of sold-out Holi Fests were so much fun! This is going to be another great party featuring music, dancing, powder mischief, dance lessons and demonstrations and farm animals. In addition to food and produce from the farm, this year’s Holi Harvest Fest will feature more food and drink vendors than ever:

This is Portland’s only Holi Festival featuring organic powder, direct from India, made from flowers, seeds and vegetables. Expect to get messy as Holi is celebrated by throwing bright colored powder on each other. Wearing white or old clothes is recommended.

LAPAUSHI

Inés Paulina Ramírez- aka Lapaushi- was born in Ecuador. She is a Portland based multidisciplinary artist and DJ. She grew up dancing to classical cumbias on cassette at her family’s parties in the Andes mountains.⁣ When she was in her twenties she moved to Mexico City where she became immersed in Sonidero culture. Her work as a DJ and visual artist combine her creative tools to manifest and celebrate cultural identity. Her sets highlights the music that brings the sounds of the Latinx/Indigenous/Caribbean/African diaspora to the dance clubs, and the spaces interested in upraise and celebrate the joy of BIPOC communities through music and art. Her mixers are usually a playful collage between dembow, cumbia, house, techno, reggaeton, hip hop and global music. Her selections come from years of traveling, collecting and sharing music from various regions of Latin America that explore Indigenous memory and African roots while incorporating contemporary electronic beats.
