Festivals in Samut Prakan

During the year we have many colourful festivals and events you can either watch or join in with. Most of these festivals are held according to the lunar calendar so the date changes each year.

  • Leaning Pagoda Worship Fair (Ban Sakhla)


  • Anniversary celebration of Nakhon Khuean Khan (Phra Pradaeng): 1-3 June



Many festivals are set by the phases of the moon and so have different dates each year:

  • Leaning Pagoda Worship Fair: 1st Day of Waning Moon of the 6th Lunar Month
  • Rub Bua: 14th day of the Waxing Moon of the 11th Lunar Month
  • Phra Samut Chedi Temple Fair: 5th Day of the Waning Moon of the 11th Lunar Month
  • Luang Pho Pan Festival: 8th Day of the Waxing Moon of the 12th Lunar Month
