Patong Carnival in Phuket

Annual Festival in Patong - November

Patong Carnival is an annual celebration marking the beginning of the high season in Phuket. Usually held right at the beginning of November, when the weather is starting to get sunnier, the three-day celebration sees Patong’s Beach Road crowded with displays, stalls and activities, as well as the flamboyant costumes and lively atmosphere that the word “carnival” usually conjures.

In recent years, the long-running Patong Carnival has been doubled up with the Patong Seafood Festival, making street food stalls selling the 'fruits of the sea' a common sight right along the beach. Alongside traditional Thai and Phuketian dishes, you can get a taste of other Asian cuisines, including Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese.

The main events of the carnival are separated into different zones around the city, with the main areas being along the famous Bangla Road, as well as Soi Post Office and Soi Dr Wattana. Attractions include live music, cultural performances, street art and an exhibition showing the historical and cultural heritage of Patong, showing rare photos of Patong in years past.

The Patong Carnival has historically kicked off with an afternoon parade along Sai Kor Road, though the heart of the city, starting at 16:30 on November 1st. The procession heads down to the southern end of the city, turns right to hit Beach Road, then comes back up to finish on Bangla Road.
