Kerala Village Fair

January

Kovalam, Kerala

Indigenously known as Gramam, the Kerala Village Fair comprehensively brings out the ethnicity of Kerala. The concept of this carnival is the replication of a traditional Keralaitte Village to feed the curiosity of visitors and give them an authentic vision of the southern state. For ten days, a model hamlet is recreated on Kovalam beach, complete with upper-class houses (Nalukettu), village teashops (Chayakada) and artisan homesteads (Kamalagramam).

Thatched huts, open courtyards, wood-and-tile mansions, ethnic jewellery, sandalwood items, exquisite curios, and handicrafts form an endearing picture. As the late January sun sets, crowds gather at the open-air auditorium where excellent folk performers put up fantastic shows and the smell of freshly cooked goodies teases the air, making gourmands salivate.
