Holi 2018 will begin on the evening of Thursday, 1 March and ENDs in the evening of Friday, 2 March

The specific date of Holi Festival can vary from year to year, as it is observed on the full moon day of Phagun (12th) month in Hindu calendar, which usually falls at the end of February or early March in the Gregorian calendar. In some places, Holi is celebrated prior to the official Holi Day. Known as the Festival of Colors, Holi is celebrated to mark the beginning of spring.

In 2018, the Holi Festival will be on March 1 when it is celebrated in a minor way; the main day for playing colors will be on March 2.
