We love a festival in Chiang Mai. The city’s internationally, legendary embracing of the annual Songkran and Loy Krathong are evidence enough. However, there is a lot more on offer, including the visually stunning Flower and Umbrella Festivals as well as other events town and the region in general. Most festival activity is seasonal, but it’s worth keeping an eye out because smaller events happen throughout the year. 

We list all events in good faith with the best information we have at hand, but please check with organisers to confirm the details.
