Overview/HistoryThis ten-day-long celebration of the culture and traditions of Kerala is known as Gramam, the Kerala Village Fair. The idea behind this fair is to replicate an entire village or gramam in the traditional style of Kerala.
CelebrationGramam, the Kerala Village Fair is set up at the Kovalam Beach and also at the Marine Drive in Ernakulam. These recreated Gramam or villages include the Nalukettu, which is the homestead of the traditional upper class, the Chayakada (village teashop), and the Kamalagramam (the artisans' enclave).

The most prominent feature of the fair is Nalukettu. Wood and tiles were used to recreate these quadrangular mansions, whose most salient feature is their open courtyard. The entire mansion is decorated with an architectural style typical of Kerala. Different kinds of items of the bygone era, including ethnic jewellery, exquisite paintings, sandalwood, charming curios, etc., are displayed inside the Nalukettu.

The most interesting part of the fair is the Kamalagramam or the enclave of the artisans, where one can find some of the most traditional artworks of Kerala, including handicrafts, jewellery, etc.

In the evening, the focus of the fair shifts to the open-air auditorium erected within the Gramam. Cultural performances of Kathakali, Mohiniyattom and folk dances give an all-encompassing picture of the life, culture and tradition of the people of Kerala.
