Carnival in Goa is one of the smaller celebrations of the Carnival festival worldwide, but is the largest in India and one of the few happening across Asia. It usually takes place around February each year and earlier used to be called the CARNIVAL.
Since the 1960s, the festival got a boost after the end of Portuguese rule in Goa. From a rural-based festival sometimes taken over by boisterousness, it grew into an urban floats-based parade, where commercial entities and cultural groups play a significantly bigger role. It is still organized in a very traditional manner, including by the staging of street side local plays, in the coastal Catholic-majority taluka of Salcete.
According to the government of Goa’s Department of Tourism, the carnival is “Goa’s most famous festival and has been celebrated since the 18th century. “In 2017, the festival was celebrated from 25–28 February.
