    why is Krishna the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu ?

    Namastey,

    Krishna said that "He incarnates whenever Dharma declines and evil evolves". Krishna Janmashtami also known as Govinda festival is celebrated on this occasion.

    Namaste Suhita.

    Since you posted in Hare Krishna forum I will answer from a gaudiya-vaishnava perspective.

    Lord Krishna is not an avatara of Lord Vishnu but His(Vishnu) source.

    I suggest you to read this link:

    Pranama,
    Orlando
    I aspire to be the servant of the servant of Lord Krishna
