Ratha Yatra and India Festival Eindhoven 2024

Join us for a vibrant celebration of Indian culture at the India Festival in the heart of Eindhoven on Saturday, 25 May! Located just a short walk from Central Station, on the 18 September Square, you’ll find a lively market bustling with stalls offering Indian clothing, books, and delicious vegetarian snacks.


  • Ratha Yatra Procession: Experience the traditional Indian procession, the Ratha Yatra, arriving at the square around 3:30 PM. ‘Ratha’ means ‘cart’ and ‘Yatra’ means ‘journey’. The procession starts at 1:30 PM at St.Trudoplein in Strijp and features the deity Jagannatha, the ‘Lord of the Universe’, usually enshrined in temples, now making a festive journey through the city.
  • Free Vegetarian Meal: Savor the taste of India with free vegetarian meals served around 4:00 PM, following an Indian tradition where food is dedicated to Krishna, making it extra beneficial and tasty.
  • Cultural Performances: Enjoy a stage program filled with Harinam sankirtan, cultural dances, music, and yoga demonstrations, including performances by the dance group Payal and Yoga by Ankan.

Market and Activities:

  • Open from 11:00 AM, the market features stalls with Indian attire, incense, meditation sets, and even henna artistry.
  • Engage with the philosophy stall to explore Indian wisdom through books and brochures.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to immerse yourself in the festivities, music, and traditions of India. We look forward to celebrating with you at the Ratha Yatra and India Festival Eindhoven 2024! 🎉

Organized entirely by Stichting Bhaktivedanta Vedic Society, Eindhoven.
