On the first day of every month, the local health and food administration organize the Paknam Food Festival in town. If the first day of the month comes at the weekend then this festival is shifted to a Monday. This takes place at the western end of Naraiprapsuek Road between Bangkok Bank and the intersection with Dankao Road near the pier. This stretch of the road is closed and turned into a walking street. Many food vendors line both sides of the road and tables and chairs are set up in the middle.
