Patong Carnival in Phuket

Annual Festival in Patong

Patong Carnival is an annual celebration that marks the start of the high season in Phuket. It usually takes place in early November, when the weather is starting to get sunnier. This 3-day celebration sees Patong’s Beach Road crowded with displays, stalls and activities, as well as a lively atmosphere of flamboyant costumes and street performances

The long-running Patong Carnival is in conjunction with the Patong Seafood Festival, making street food stalls a common sight right along the beach. Along with traditional Thai dishes, you can sample a wide range of cuisine from many Asian cuisines, including Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese.
