The Festival of Chariots (Rathayatra) will be taking place for the 32nd year in Toronto. The Rathayatra committee cordially invites all devotees all around the world to come and take part in this wonderful festival.

The event is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, July 17-18. The parade begins at 11 a.m. at the corner of Yonge Street and Asquith (Toronto Reference Library, one block north of Bloor Avenue). Festivities continue at Centre Island for the remainder of the weekend.

What makes Toronto Rathayatra unique? It is our Festival on an Island, the ferry ride with devotees, the vibrant Kirtan on the ferry and, of course, the wonderful prasadam. It is one of the largest multi-cultural festivals in North America. Please come and experience the mellows of Sri Jaganatha Rathayatra in Toronto.
