7TH EDITION OF ANNUAL CRAFTS EXPO
Sargaalaya Kerala Arts and Crafts Village, Iringal will be organizing the 7th Edition of Annual Crafts Expo from 21th December 2017 to 8th January 2018. After the grand success of the 6th Edition of the Festival – SIACF has become best of its kind in India. The next edition of the Festival is expected to attract around 4 Lakh Visitors both Domestic and International tourists. The Tourist’s inflow to North Kerala is comparatively less than South Kerala and this festival has brought a change to this scenario by attracting more visitors. The festival offers unique opportunity for Tourists to get an overall experience of India’s rich Crafts Tradition.
