What Is The Versova Seafood Festival 2020
Get ready for a weekend of lip-smacking seafood dishes, fun games, dance and drama at the Versova Seafood Festival 2020. This festival has been happening every year since 2007 and attracts nearly 20-30 thousand people each year! The main attraction of the festival has to be the pocket-friendly rates of seafood dishes along with the games, culture sessions, fun and fair, dance and more. Now I visited last year and I promise you it has been an experience like never before. From the crazy atmosphere to the cultural performances, the shared buffet-style tables & the chitter-chatter of the Kolis – this is something you just CANNOT miss.

About The Seafood Dishes
If you’re a seafood lover, this festival will be like paradise for you. The fish vendors will be collecting 1 ton of fresh fish daily for this festival of 3 days! Enjoy over 15-20 varieties of freshwater fish and crabs at only ₹50, ₹100 and ₹150. Some of the varieties available are – King Prawns, Bombil, Lobsters, Bombay Duck, Pomfret, Tuna, Surmai, Mackerel, Basa, Shellfish and more. These fish are caught 2 hours before serving and are served with special Kolhapuri masala.
Of course, depending on the kind of fish served, the prices can also range from ₹300 to ₹550 and more. The only thing I learned from last year’s experience is that there is no fixed rate at the stalls and they quote as they wish. So feel free to bargain just a little bit!
The Koli community of fishermen will also be putting up special dances and plays for the public. You will get to experience the wonderful Koli culture with songs and dance. For the kids, there will be games and fun and fair arranged.
