The festival of Dhanteras is celebrated every year on the thirteenth day of the dark fortnight in the month of Kartik. It marks the beginning of Diwali. This year, Dhanteras will be celebrated on Trayodashi or the 13th lunar day of Krishna Paksha in the Hindu calendar month of Ashwin or Kartika.

On the auspicious day, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped along with Lord Kubera.
