Color Fun Fest 5K Des Moines
Come join us as we combine two of the most EPIC festivals in the world. Color Fun Fest brings the Holi Festival and the electronic dance movement together for the first time with a day and night glowing color 5K run.
As day transforms into night and the dust settles from our day color run, we power up the strongest blacklights in the world to transition our day color run into a nighttime 5k color run festival called Color Fun Fest.
Join us at the finish line as we celebrate life with an after party of mass color and high voltage dance music. Come one, come all, come spend your weekend with your family, friends and loved ones to create an EPIC night you will never forget.

Giving back to the community is one of the driving factors of Color Fun Fest. Each run will donate a portion of proceeds to a local non-profit charity. We are working with Free Arts for Abused Children, a nonprofit organization that gives children that have suffered adversity a chance to express themselves through art. Another organization we are involved with is called “HopeKids”, a non profit that helps the families of children with life-threatening medical conditions find hope and enjoy life with a loving and supportive community of compassionate people.
If you are a non-profit and would like to be involved with Color Fun Fest, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
We love to work with vendors and sponsors around the country and local to the cities we attend. If you are a business interested in sponsoring or vending at the event and reaching thousands of fun-seeking people, please fill out our sponsor form.
