Festival of the Chariot

Clearwater is one of several cities across Florida and the nation that hosts “Rathayatra” or Festival of the Chariot.  This Hare Krishna festival with religious and cultural significance dates beach to 1486 and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.  The chariot carries the deities Lord Jagannatha, Lord Balarama, and Lady Subhadra as attendees pull it with long ropes through city streets.  Chanting, dancing, and feasting culminate the celebration which honors Lord Krishna’s return to Vrindaban.
