The Agri Koli Prabodhan Trust has organized a ten-day Agri Koli festival at Nerul. The festival to be held from January 2nd to 11th will showcase the culture and tradition of this fishermen community. This would be the third year when a celebration of the Agri Koli community would be held in Nerul. The unique feature of the festival is that apart from showcasing the culture and tradition of the Agri community, it would also give an opportunity to enjoy the various delicacies of different states of the country. The President of the association, Namdeo Bhagat stated that through this festival, different cultures of the country are brought together on one platform. It may be noted that last year the festival witnessed presence of more than 50000 people daily. Expecting a vast crowd this year too, the organizers have made the necessary arrangements.
