The state festival of Kerala is Onam, This year it is on August 28. Even if it is one of the Hindu festival, it is celeberated by Malayalees all over the world without any discrimination of caste & religion.

This festival signifies the commemoration of Vamana avatara of Vishnu(Hindu God] and the subsequent homecoming of the mythical King Mahabali who Malayalees consider as their King.

In Kerala, it is the festival celebrated with most number of cultural elements such as Vallam Kali, Pulikali, Pookkalam, Onathappan, Thumbi Thullal, Onavillu, Kazhchakkula, Onapottan, Atthachamayam etc. Onam is reminiscent of Kerala's agrarian past, as it is considered to be a harvest festival.
