Onam is a major, annual harvest festival that is celebrated mainly by Keralites in and out of India. It marks the start of the Malayalam calendar and falls on the 22nd nakshatra Thiruvonam in Chingam, a month in the Malayalam calendar. This generally falls in August–September and this year Onam will be celebrated on September 1.

Legend has it that the festival is celebrated to honour King Mahabali, whose spirit is said to visit Kerala at the time of Onam. As part of the festivities people also participate in Vallam Kali (boat races), Pulikali (tiger dances), Pookkalam (flower arrangement), Onathappan (worship), Onam Kali, Tug of War, Thumbi Thullal (women’s dance), Kummattikali (mask dance), Onathallu (martial arts), Onavillu (music), Kazhchakkula (plantain offerings), Onapottan (costumes), Atthachamayam (folk songs and dance), among other fun activities.
