The Arizona Malayalees Association represents people from the gorgeous South Indian state of Kerala and who have come to Arizona for various reasons.  The language spoken by those from this tropical paradise is called Malayalam, hence the people from Kerala are called Malayalees. Kerala is a land of unsurpassed beauty, with Tropical jungles, lush mountains, sparkling beaches, and an eco-tourist's ultimate destination.

We are the oldest secular Malayalee organization in Arizona and have built a solid network among the Malayalee population through programs, cultural events, etc.  The association's aim is to provide a forum that represents the great culture of Kerala and to provide a source for Malayalees to network among themselves. 

The last three years has seen a tremendous growth in the Malayalee population and all have actively supported the association in every endeavor.  Their support is seen in the tremendous success of our regular events/functions such as the picnic, Onam, Christmas, etc. In 2007, super-star Mohanlal graced Arizona with his presence for a sold out stage show organized by the association.

For the first time, in 2008, the association is offering the chance for community members to become paid members of the association. Paid members do not have to pay for any of the regular events such as the Picnic, Onam, Talent show, and Christmas.  Additionally, paid members also receive discounts to the other events/functions organized by the association.


Note: Thanks to feedback from a community member (Jayasree), the font has been changed for better readability.  Further proof that we do listen to our community members!
