 Nuakhai is an agricultural festival mainly observed by people of Western Odisha. Nuakhai is also known as Nabanna. According to Hindu calendar it is observed on panchami tithi (fifth day) of lunar fortnight of Bhadrava (August-September), the day after Ganesh chaturthi. This is the most important social festival of Western Odisha.

About the Festival Nuakhai is an agricultural festival of both the tribal people as well as the caste-Hindus. Despite the fact that the festival is observed throughout Western Odisha, it has a major influence on the life and culture of the tribal dominated Western Orissa. It is not a pretentious celebration, not just an exhibition of tradition, either. It is a festival of worship of food grain.

Deities that are offered Nua Every year,the Tithi (day) and Samay (time) of observance was astrologically determined by the Hindu priests. In Sambalpur, Brahmin priests sat together at the Brahmapura Jagannath temple and calculated the day and time.Tithi (date) and Lagna (auspicious moment) were calculated in the name of Pataneswari Devi in Balangir-Patnagarh area, in the name of Sureswari Devi in Subarnapur area, and in the name of Manikeswari Devi in Kalahandi area. In Sundargarh, Puja was first offered by the royal family to goddess Sekharbasini in the temple which is opened only for once on the occasion of Nuakhai. In Sambalpur, at the stipulated Lagna (auspicious moment), the head priest of Samaleswari temple offers the nua-anna or nabanna to goddess Samaleswari, the presiding deity of Sambalpur.
