Touxeachem Fest (in Konkani) also known as Cucumber Feast is a very popular feast celebrated in Goa.
It is celebrated at the magnificent Church of St Anne also known as the Santana Church
located at Talaulim in Tiswadi taluka and dedicated to St Anne.
Young couples come to the Church to seek the blessings of St Anne,
who herself was blessed with a child after 40 years of barren life.
They buy cucumbers from local vendors at the feast and offer them at the feet of St Ann
and carry them home to eat. Besides the huge number of devotees from all around Goa,
devotees from across the State also throng the church on the feast day.
