November Thailand Events

Post by Gaybutton »

Pattaya International Fireworks Festival 2021

The event is scheduled to take place from 26-27 November 2021. More details will be updated soon.

Surin Elephant Round-Up

The world-famous Surin Elephant Round-up in the Northeastern province of Surin – around 430 km from Bangkok – pays homage to the way of life, culture, and traditions of the local Kui people and their longstanding relationship with Thailand’s majestic elephants. While the festival is normally held in November, this year the plan is to stage it from 15-26 December 2021 although these dates are yet to be confirmed.

The event’s program for the Surin Elephant Round-up typically features a magnificent parade of elephants, an enormous buffet meal for the mighty beasts, and a show starring them.

River Kwai Bridge Week

Usually held from late November through into early December, the River Kwai Bridge Week in Kanchanaburi province has this year been postponed for a couple of weeks and is scheduled for 17-26 December 2021. This event, of which the highlight is a spectacular sound and light show, honors the PoWs and Asian laborers who were forced to build the infamous Death Railway in World War II.

The preceding is a press release from the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

Please note that changes to the planned dates of the Surin Elephant Round-Up and the River Kwai Bridge Week may occur depending on the current situation, and it is advised to keep a regular check on these.
Also, festivals and events may be somewhat affected by pandemic control and prevention measures; for example, in audience size limits and other social distancing requirements.

Pattaya music fest to continue despite Covid reports

Mayor confident in health measures as weekend fireworks show also goes ahead as planned

26 November, 2021

Music festivals and other activities in Pattaya will continue as planned despite the discovery of coronavirus infections in some people who had gathered outside the concert venue, Mayor Sonthaya Khunpleum said on Friday.

Mr Sonthaya said no scheduled events in the resort city would be derailed by the detection of the virus during the second weekend of the Pattaya Music Festival on Nov 12 and 13.

The provincial public health office in Chonburi on Thursday urged all unmasked attendees who had gone outside the concert site on those two days to get tested after a number of people on the fringes of the site had been detected with the virus.

The office did not specify the exact number of people infected.

The music festival started on Nov 5-6, followed by shows on Nov 12-13. The next concerts on the beach will be held on Dec 3-4 and Dec 10-11.

The city is holding a fireworks festival on Friday and Saturday and is also preparing for New Year countdown events from Dec 29 to Dec 31.

Mr Sonthaya expressed confidence in the measures in place to prevent the spread of the virus, noting that only 500 concert-goers were allowed inside the music zone to ensure proper social distancing.

Police and volunteers will step up patrols outside the concert zone and authorities will also take action on violators of alcohol bans, he added.
