Event Profile
Shigmotsav is one of the popular festivals of Goa, celebrated in the month of Phalguna (March). The festival commences with Naman (obeisance) of villagers from ninth moon day to full moon day. From 11th to 15th moon day, they gather at the village temples, with their multi-coloured attire, flags, torans, and column-like red spotted "Dwajas". Fifth day of the Shigmo festival is the day of rejoicing. This day is called as “Rang Panchami”. Red powder (Gulal) is profusely used by the people for the celebration. A spectacular Shigmo parade is annually held in the Panjim city. This parade is also held at Vasco, Margao, Mapusa and Ponda.
