The festival will also feature a line-up of famous local bands. A fashion show by ace designer Wendell Rodricks is touted to be one of the main highlights.
An element of competition has also been introduced with entries being invited for the King Momo Contest and the cooking competition. The cooking competition will take place at the NIWS Grounds during the Food & Cultural Festival.

To make the celebration more inclusive, the Carnaval experience will also comprise live musical performances featuring local bands at Colva and Mapusa from the 9th  to the 12th of February, 2013.
