The Gaudiya Vaisnava Calendar is full of festivals and the Mission observes them with reverence. However, out of these, appearance of Lord Sri Krishna (Shri Krishna Janmashtami) in the month of Bhadra (July- August), appearance of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (Holi Purnima) in the month of Phalgun (February-March) and Sri Annakut (October-November) are celebrated with all grandeur and sublimity. Sankirtan in the company of Sanyasis, Brahmacharis and devotees is carried out singing devotional songs in glorification of the divine couple Sri Radha and Krishna. Kirtans together with recitals from Sri Bhagvatam are carried on in a highly devotional atmosphere. Devotees get Mahaprasad during this occasion.
Apart from these holy festivals, Lord Jagannth Snanjatra and Rathajatra, a month long Urjabrata Utsava during the month of Kartik, Ramnavami, twenty-one days long Sri Chandan Yatra mahotsava, Sri Govardhan puja, and Sri Radha Asthami are also celebrated during the year at Gaudiya Mission USA.
