We are sorry to inform you that we must cancel the Philadelphia Ratha Yatra Festival this year. We recently received notice that the City has canceled all public events requiring permits for the rest of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We regret not being able to serve Lord Jagannatha, Lord Baladeva, and Srimati Subhadra devi along with Their devotees this year by giving Them a grand parade through downtown Philadelphia and flooding the streets with the chanting of the Holy Names of God, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
Thank you for your continued support and participation and we look forward to having a wonderful festival in 2021.
The Ratha Yatra Team
