The “Festival of the Chariots,” known throughout India as the “Ratha Yatra” festival, has been performed for thousands of years in Puri, India, and today it is celebrated in all major cities throughout the world. More than 3,000 people attend each year in San Francisco alone.

Typically at this annual interactive parade, people pull three large chariots by ropes throughout Golden Gate Park, ending at Sharon Meadow on the corner of JFK Dr. and Stanyan Street around 1 pm for the Festival of India.

Everyone is invited for a free vegetarian meal, live music, ancient Indian dances, exhibits, books, and more.

Cost: Free
