Festivals are the time when a city or town comes back to life with full vigour. Since Diu is a predominantly Hindu region with a heavy influence of Gujarati culture, Navaratri is the most anticipated festival every year.

During this
nine day festival, worshipping the Shakti, the whole town dons a festive look. Bright lights, smell of festive sweets, fairs and people with beaming faces will greet you in Diu and it's hard to not be infected by the them. During Navratri, people from all walks of life leave behind their inhibitions and get in the groove of playing dandiya. The energy and tempo increases as the night gets darker. This dandiya festival has taken a massive form and people from various parts of the country come to take part in it.

Also every year in the month of December,
Diu festival is organized that kicks off on the 19th and lasts for two to four days. This is a great initiative by the government to keep the traditions and heritage alive.

Join in the colorful festivity and explore the town when it is brimming with life and energy!
