Events and Festivals in Agonda

  • The Bonderam festival: This is a light-hearted harking back to the animosity that existed between two wards of a village during the Portuguese era.
  • Feast of St. Francis Xavier: The Feast of St. Francis Xavier commemorates the death of St. Francis Xavier, patron saint of Goa.
  • Ganesh Chaturthi: One of the Hindu festivals that is celebrated widely not just in Agonda but the whole of Goa state. Observed as the birthday of the elephant-god Ganesha in the Hindu pantheon, Ganesh Chaturthi festival is marked by traditional fervor and gaiety.
  • Goa Carnival: The Goa carnival is synonymous with the state of Goa and is the manifestation of the quintessential fun-loving spirit of Goan's at its sublime best. Largely a legacy of the Portuguese era, the Goa carnival has transcended the confines of its religious roots.
