Shigmotsav Goa 2017

Shigmo is the spring festival of Goa that is celebrated in the month of Falgun according to the Saka calendar. The festival is one of the important Hindu festivals and is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm in Goa. This 5-day long festival witnesses a wide range of activities and traditions that make it a colorful and extravagant affair. Also known as Shigmotsav and Shishirotsava, the festival is celebrated in lieu of the homecoming of warriors who left their homes to fight with the invaders during Dusshera. The festival starts with Holi and continues till 5 days.

The festival is celebrated since the era of Portugese colonials and has a great relevance in the history of the state too. Parades, cultural programs and grand celebrations are a part of this festival that makes it all the more exciting. It also commemorates the ripening of the winter crops and holds a special importance in the hearts of the farmers. People can be seen enjoying, playing with colors and dancing to the beats of folk music during the festival. It shows a different side of Goa, which catches the eyes of many visitors as well. This year, Shigmo will be celebrated from 14th March to 27th March with the same glee and shall be visited to experience Goa’s version of Holi.
