Goa which is famous for Sunburn and seafood festival is likely to add new festivals to state festival list as the state government is examining the possibilities of organizing the coconut or cashew festival during 2013-2014 to boost tourism in the state.
Tourism minister Dilip Parulekar in a written reply to assembly has said that the details are to be finalized with regards to the budget for the festival.
"Department will examine various possibilities for promoting cashew or coconut based drinks especially among tourists visiting the state," he added
Parulekar also said that the department has no intention to replace the existing wine festival by introducing new Feni (local alcoholic drink) festival.
