The calendar below contains details of 50 festivals and their accompanying rituals that take place during Kerala’s monsoon season usually in the months between May and August. The calendar highlights temple, church, or mosque locations, provides dates of festivals and rituals, and gives information on the contact persons associated with upcoming shows. This collection also includes fifty videos which will provide a brief glimpse of these colorful festivals and rituals.

Kerala is a land of festivals. Every month, in fact almost every week, a festival is celebrated in some corner of the state. The monsoon arrives and swathes the parched land in verdant greens and bright yellows. Life blossoms again and the earth awaits another harvest and the drum beats of yet another festival.

The calendar will add a cultural aspect to those planning monsoon holidays. As the monsoons in Kerala do not have a pattern of incessant downpours, the respite of sunshine and the opportunity for travel is always present.
