Veda Vyasa Jayanti is observed by certain Hindu communities on the 13th day (Trayodashi) of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) of Vaisakha month. This particular Veda Vyasa Jayanti is more popular in South India, especially with some communities in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh and for some communities in western parts of India.

It must be noted that Veda Vyasa Jayanti is observed on different dates in a year. This is because it is believed that Sri Veda Vyasa appeared several times to spread Dharma. The dates also differ from region to region and community to community.
