Find encouragement, guidance, and innovation at this year’s Festival of Inspiration!
Mother’s Day weekend, from May 8 to 10, 2020, marks the return of the once famous New Vrindaban Festival of Inspiration with the theme: Celebrating Vaishnava Arts. The three-day event will explore the hallmarks of Vaishnava art, theater, music, and speech and how they can enrich our lives, strengthen our communities, and assist us in spreading the wealth of the Krishna consciousness movement.
With devotees in all genres showcasing their talent and skills and presenting workshops, this is sure to be a transformative and inspirational weekend both for your creative and spiritual yearning.
The retreat begins on Friday morning at 8am with a Srimad-Bhagavatam class by Bhakti Charu Swami.
Thereafter, we will present a range of seminars and creative offerings by qualified devotees in their fields of expertise:
HH Bhaktimarga Swami (Drama and Theater)
HH Bhakti Caru Swami (Public Speaking)
Sankirtan Das (The Art of Storytelling)
Kalakantha Das (Music)
Krishna Bhava Dasi (Painting)
Ananda Vrindavaneswari Dasi (The Art of Association)
Ananda Vardhana Das (Music)
Prabhupada Priya Dasi (The Art of Study)

And many others!
We look forward to serving you and celebrating with you!
