Loei - Festival

Phi Ta Khon Festival

This festival is celebrated in Dam Sai during the end of June or at the beginning of July to make Buddhist merit and call for rain. Young men and boys are dressed up as Phi Ta Khon, or sprits in robes of patchwork rags and wear painted masks. They dance joy-ously in the procession and make playful jibes at onlookers.

Pilgrimage to Phra That Din Thaen

Phra That Din Thaen is a large heap of soil assembled by the faithful more than 200 years ago. On the 14th-15th days of the waxing moon in November, people in Ban Saeng Pha in Na Haeo and nearby villages, make pilgrimages to this sacred place. Various entertainment is performed throughout the night.

Annual Celebration at Phra That Si Song Rak

The annual festival at this sacred and greatly revered religious site is the most significant religious celebration for both the Thai people in Loei and nearby provinces and the Laotian people living on the other side of the Hueang River. This festival is held on the 15th day of the waxing moon in May, which is believed to be the day on which the Buddha was born, attained enlightenment and passed way. On this day, people sit around the Phra That, and pass bundles of candles three times. A number of men are ordained on this occasion, as it is believed that those ordained on the ground of this sacred place will attain great virtues.

Ton Dok Mai Parade

This festival is believed to date back to the construction of Phra That Din Thaen 200 years ago, On 13th April, people in Ban Saeng Pha in Na Haeo divide themselves into groups to jointly make Ton Dok Mai, which are religious offerings made of bamboo and decorated with flowers, candles and basic necessities for monks. At night, people carry their own Ton Dok Mai to Wat Si Pho Chai at the center of the village.

End of Buddhist Lent

As a center of business and trading along the Mekong River, Chiang Khan has brought forth wealth and prosperity to most residents. The End of Buddhist Lent is thus celebrated here with more pomp and fanfare than in other places. On the 11th day of the waxing moon to the 1st day of the waning moon in October, people enjoy themselves with candle-lit boat floatation, candle decorated caravan competitions and long boat racing along the Mekong River.
