CarnivalAs we know well that Goa is a Hindu populated state, but it is also known for its cosmopolitan nature. Goans are famous for their liberal views. Being located on the sea coast always facilitates the seamless flow of external exchanges. Festivals in Goa are the living example of this cultural process throughout the history. There are scores of Hindu festivals, which are celebrated here with full fun and gaiety. Hindus have their own calendar, so they don't occur on fixed dates of Gregorian calendar. Goa was under Portuguese rule for a very long period so these Hindu festivals in Goa have a unique Portuguese taste. Diwali, Chovoth, Holi, Gokulashtmi, Lairai Jatra, Gudi Padwa, Nagpanchami, Raksha Bandhan are some of the major Hindu festivals of Goa.

Hindu myths describe Goa as a land of Gods and it's not baseless. There are hundreds of Gods and Goddesses in Goa which are worshiped with full devotion. Being an erstwhile Portuguese colony, Goan organize many Christian festivals. These are very popular in Goa and even tourists throughout the world come to participate in some of these festivals. These festivals include Feast of three kings, Christmas, Colva Fama, Margao Feast, Konsachem Fest and Sao Jao. Fun-loving Goans have numerous other celebrations also. These include Carnival, Shigmo, Sea Food Festival, Kesarbai Kerkar Music Festival and Goa Heritage Festival. Your participation in these celebrations will be a memorable experience.
