Bun Luang and Phi Ta Khon Festival 2023 23-25 June 2023, Dan Sai District, Loei
The most outrageous festival in Thailand.
Also known as the Ghost Festival, this unique celebration is full of colour, culture and tradition. Its most well-known element is the grand Phi Ta Khon parade by locals who dance and strike poses while wearing huge masks made from carved coconut tree trunks, topped with wicker sticky-rice steamers to make them appear taller and more grotesque.
Activities on the first day include food offerings to monks, a summoning of spirits ceremony, cultural ceremony and stage performances. On day two is the festival’s official opening ceremony in front of Dan Sai District Office, a summoning of spirits, and the Phi Ta Khon parade, merit making, and firing of bamboo rockets. On day three will be 13 consecutive Buddhist sermons at Phon-Chai Temple, and parading of consecutive Buddhist sermons of all villages in Dan Sai District.
