Facebook Page: Vesave Koli Seafood Festival This is it, folks! The mother of all food festivals gets bigger and more popular every year. The Kolis, who are the fishing community of Maharashtra, organize this 3-day festival to celebrate, and people of all castes and communities throng to this event to have a blast. Going to the Koli Seafood Festivalis like attending a rave – thousands of people having a great time moving to loud music, live performances, alcohol flowing free and megatons of seafood, of course! Lobsters, crabs, shellfish, prawns of all sizes, fish cooked in every way possible, fish eggs (yuck!), shrimp, and other tasty creatures from the sea!

Tiger prawns and KF Draught

There are countless food stalls, all run by Koli families. The women are decked in traditional attire and jewellery – they do the cooking and run the show. The men in the family are meek and obedient – they merely help the ladies do their thing. Talk about being pussy-whipped! Some of the Koli girls are really hot and they sure know how to dress up! By the way, these Kolis have absolutely no regard for government rules – there was alcohol flowing without end on a dry day! While the rest of the state had to go to bed with a parched throat, people who attended the Koli Seafood Festival boozed till early morning, and right under the cops’ noses! Man, Oktoberfest is like a shitty kitty party compared to the Koli Seafood Festival. The best thing about this Koli bash is that you can eat as much seafood as you want without burning a hole in your pocket, and since the food is cooked by the Koli families, it’s as authentic as it gets! Check out these pictures from the last five years. Do these Kolis know how to party or what!

    If you are real lover of fish from your bottom of your heart then this is the place for you.
    Do not afraid about too much croud , unexpected super super expensive prices, unhigenic place , poor small sittings arraignment , no sanitation arraignment for you or your family , even no water to wash your hands ( only tissue) after eating all oily food served in thermacole plates,
    I feel everything is super HYPEd
    HAUWAAAA ONLY
    Not happy with arraignment
