Kerala Tourism’s Utsavam 2018, a celebration of the traditional folk art forms of the state, will begin tomorrow. State Tourism Minister, Kadakampally Surendran will launch the State-level programme at a event scheduled at Kannur tomorrow. Instead of 14 venues in 14 districts last year, Utsavam 2018 will be held in 28 venues in all 14 districts in the State.  

‘Utsavam 2018 being organised during the tourism season would also mean more visibility and mileage to Kerala Tourism and this is expected to add more charm to the department’s activities’, said the Tourism Minister. 

As per Kerala Tourism release, around 150 art forms, 350-plus folk arts shows and more than 5000 artists will come together for Utsavam 2018, which will be a grand display of Kerala’s traditional and ritualistic art forms.

‘By increasing the number of venues to 28 from last year’s 14, the department wanted to expand the scope of staging folk arts shows not just in district centres but also in more places in Kerala. Utsavam 2018, which will have more than 5000 artists performing in various venues, is expected to provide more fillip to the Keral Tourism scenario’, said. P. Bala Kiran, IAS, Director, Kerala Tourism.
