EXPERIENCE THE TRUE GOA
Were you one of those who made the sensible decision to avoid Goa during the hustle and bustle of the New Year? Well, rejoice as the beach destination has something big in store for you. The state is organising a five-day Annual Heritage Festival. The festival, which is now in its second iteration, will celebrate the arts, culture and history of the state. Organised by the Department of Tourism and Goa Tourism Development Corporation, you can look forward to Goan crafts such as pottery, woodcraft, crochet, handicrafts, coconut craft, hand painted tiles and much more. The festival will also feature several food stalls that will let you experience authentic Goan cuisine.
That’s not all. There is also a special gallery which will be set up to showcase Goan heritage, great Goans in history, the traditional Goan life and major moments in Goa’s history through photographs. Apart from that, there will various dance performances, a fashion show by Goan fashion designer Verma D’Mello on traditional Goan wear, classical and Konkani singing and more.
