About Goa

Goa is a state on the southwestern coast of India. Its western border is connected to the Arabian Sea, which is what gives Goa its world-renowned beaches. Goa was once a Portugese province, and subsequently many of its citizens  follow the Catholic faith. Goa is famous for its picturesque beaches and delicious food. Some common foods in Goa include fish curry, pork vindaloo, sorpatel, chicken xacuti. In addition, bebinca, dodol, coconut and cashew feni are favorites. Hungry for some Goan cuisine?

About Us

The Goan Association of New York was formed in 1967 and incorporated in December 1975 with the aim of keeping the spirit of Goa alive amongst New Yorkers. Our Association's members range in age from 1 to 100; we welcome all! We aim to embody and carry on the true Goan spirit of faith, fun and generosity to our future generations so that they may know what it is to truly be a Goan. Throughout the year, we host a variety of events to build community and share our culture. Some of the events we have held in the past few years are the St. Francis Xavier Feast, Spring Ball, Memorial Day Camp, and the Summer Picnic.
