Join the evening celebration of Christmas in Panjim with Make It Happen!
Christmas in Goa is always special. But what is even more special is the evening feast in Fontainhas celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Nativity. This celebration is exclusive to Fontainhas and is not observed elsewhere in Goa.
In 1938, a statue of mother Mary was found in Fontainhas and was considered very auspicious. With that day began the celebrations on the evening of December 25th. The feast is celebrated by the Fontainhas ward with Carol singing, litany, live brass band, food and drinks and all feast arrangements are made by the local community.
An evening like this could give a very different perspective of Christmas celebration in India and our aim was to have guests from around the world experience a very exclusive evening filled with heritage, nostalgia and the festive mood that Christmas brings along.
