Goa Carnival

The Goa Carnival is a much-awaited affair in Goa and is now an inseparable heritage of the state. Its preparations begin from the month of December itself. It is not only music and dance that makes the evenings flashy but some short plays are also composed and enacted. The festival brings out the best of the vibrant culture of Goa. The festivities and celebrations that continue for three days gift Goa a new life... so jazzy, so lively! The vibrant musical parades and lavish floats are the major highlights of the carnival. Though it started as a celebration enjoyed only by the local population, it has today crossed the state frontiers and attracts thousands of people from all over the country.

Goa Carnival

The 'Carnival' is exclusive and unique to Goa, and was introduced by the Portuguese who ruled over Goa for over five hundred years. The three days and nights carnival, when the legendary king Momo, takes over the state and the streets come alive with music and color. The festive aura fills every corner of the state. Both men and women are elated. They put on fancy clothes and colourful masks and dance to the music that Romans earlier danced on. The carnival is meant to be a feasting-drinking-merrymaking just before the austere 40 days of Lent. Mingle in the riot of colours!
