Chonburi "Wing Kwai" Buffalo Racing Festival 2017


Wing Kwai - Buffalo Racing Festival

Date: 28 - 4 October 2017 (Race Day 4 October)
Destination: In front of Chonburi City's Municipal Office, Chonburi


This October, have a side trip to Chonburi to witness "Wing Kwai" or Buffalo Racing Festival, one of the most iconic festivals of Thailand. This festival has taken place for more than 100 years. In the old days, it was a fair where locals meet up and celebrate before the harvest season begins. Now it becomes the province's highlight event filled up with interesting line-up, all related to water buffalo.

For 7 days long, you will enjoy with eye-feasting festivities that you can get close to water buffalo. There will be parades of beautifully decorated cart and opening ceremony, following by buffalo contest and series of buffalo sprint races (Khang Wing Kwai) across the field in front of the town's municipal offices. When the race begins, you can feel the excitement with the crowd roar as they are cheering for their favorite. Catch the action of jockeys trying to stay on the back of the buffalo as it stampedes along the track. The scene is truly remarkable!
