Make a celebration for your soul – join the amazing, fun and awesome festival!

Annual Vaishnava Winter Festival  invites everyone to meet the Vaishnava culture – an ancient Vedic tradition teaching about self-realization, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and our eternal personal relationships with the Divine.

Every morning at the festival starts with greeting the Deities, then individual prayer – mantra meditation, and Srimad Bhagavatam class. After breakfast we listen to the lectures given by disciples of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. After lunch we invite to participate in kirtans – Vaishnava songs praising Lord Sri Krishna and His exalted devotees.

During the whole festival, you will be able to meet and associate with different (and really interesting!) people, to purchase books and Vaishnava attributes.

We invite everyone who wants to know this spiritual culture and have lots of fun together.
