Highlights of past events


Onam Celebration in Virginia
Celebration of Onam festival provides Virginias with a perfect opportunity to encourage the new generation of children of Kerala origin to witness, learn and appreciate these rich traditions, even while it offers the first generation Malayalees to stay connected and cherish the rich cultural heritage they hold so dear to them as well as it serves as a way of showcasing these traditions to the larger American community.
WMC’s promotes children to adopt Malayalee culture and heritage
Living in America that is far away from our homeland, in the midst of different cultures, busy with the day-to-day activities, work and home tasks, the Malayalee community made this “land of opportunities” their home, have brought with them these cultural traditions and have sought to pass them on to their children, who are often born and raised here.
Malayalees in Maryland
During ONAM season the ambience of Malayalee Marylanders was filled with nostalgia since it was an occasion for all the Malayalees in this area to cherish their childhood memories, especially when everyone enjoyed ONAM Sadhya served on banana leaves. Legendary King Mahabali was welcomed to the venue of the program with pancha vadyam and a warm traditional welcome by women, who later on performed Thiruvathirakkali, folk dance etc.
