Vasantholsavam organised by the Government of Kerala is to be held with the participation of non-resident Keralites coming for the Loka Kerala Sabha Sammelanam.
In Kerala, festival dates are decided in accordance with the Malayalam calendar and the local traditions and customs. We have calculated the festival dates based on these. But there can be changes in the dates according the customs and rituals associated with each place of worship. As such, these should be considered only as approximate dates and have to be confirmed with the local authorities.
