About The Event

Goa on this monsoon to celebrate Sao Joao

About Sao Joao

The Sao Joao is a monsoon festival celebrated with much enthusiasm. This festival is celebrated to mark the joy of St. John on Jesus’s birth by jumping into the wells, ponds and streams.

Monsoons in Goa is beautiful, it becomes even more memorable during the Feast of Sao Joao (Saint John the Baptist) which is celebrated uniquely in the rain-drenched villages of Goa on the 24th of June.

There is so much of song, dance and merriment, you can’t help but get carried away with the heady spirit of the season.

The music of the drums called the Ghumott and the percussion instrument called the Kansallem can be so enticing that you can’t help but become one with all the joy surrounding you… you might even want to join the revellers and jump into a well with an ecstatic shout of “Sao Joao!” as the villagers do.

Or at least join in the mandos and other peppy dances happening along the riverfronts, wells, and ponds around.

About the place :-

Vagator Beach is split into two main beaches by a seaside headland which holds the car park and lots of stalls selling trinkets, clothes, soft drinks and snacks. As you face the sea, on your right is North Vagator Beach (Big Vagator) and on your left Ozran Beach, more commonly known as Little Vagator Beach.
