KNOW MORE ABOUT PHUKET VEGETARIAN FESTIVAL

The Vegetarian Festival in Phuket started about 150 years ago in the Kathu district, where the majority of the Chinese tin mine workers were settled in Phuket.

The event always takes place over nine days, starting on the first evening of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. This means the event always takes place in September or October.

The 2019 event took place from the 29 September until the 7th October.

Phuket Vegetarian Festival 2019

The general idea behind the vegetarian festival and all the associated rituals is to bestow good fortune on the participants and the local community. The festival is a spectacular, unusual and sometimes truly bizarre spectacle. It is also a very loud festival. Firecrackers, fireworks and drums are a constant part of the activities, especially during the processions and rituals. The noise is meant to scare away evil spirits.

10 RULES FOR THE VEGETARIAN FESTIVAL
