2020 is looking like The Year of No Festivals, due to COVID-19
If that changes, we will be announcing it on our social media and email list, so please do consider signing up (over on the right on a desktop, or at the bottom of the page on mobile) and following on Instagram or Facebook.

In the meantime, you can show your support for the survival of our business AND get a great deal by picking up a gift card.

Once gatherings of <50 are allowed again and our fellow professionals like hair stylists and tattoo artists are allowed to work, please consider hosting a henna party

Here is a list of some of our major public events! Individual henna designs range $15-75, and the most designs are in the $30-40ish range.

Look for the booth pictured here. When you see this booth, you know it’s someone on the Henna by Heather team!
Pro tip: Come as early as possible, even an hour before the official start time of the event at most events, to avoid the line and assure you get the most personal attention possible! Once there’s a line, we work hard to henna as fast as possible…we’d like to chat with you, though, so please come early 🙂

Know of a festival that should be on this list but isn’t yet? Let us know where, when, how many people typically come, and who to get in touch with!

Wanted to book a wedding or party for a date that Heather will be at a festival? For some dates, she can be convinced to do your event rather than the festival if you can match what she’d earn at the festival. Associate artists on our team with 5+ years of henna art experience are also available with normal booking minimums (ie 2 hours in our primary service area).

Always call at 617-429-6301 and/or check our Instagram for updates before coming to an event just to see us – sometimes things change at the last minute due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
