Chiang Mai has many events each year so even the most fun-seeker addicts will be happy.  Events are held all through the year.  Some Festivals are Historical while others are Religious or Public Holidays.

13 April – Great Songkran Day – The Revered Phra Phutthasihing Buddha image is paraded around Chiang Mai town for bathing.

13 – 15 April – Thai New Year – (Songkran Festival) - This is the Buddhist New Year Celebration and is known as the “Water Festival”.  This Festival marks the start of the Rainy Season.  The Origins of the Festival is where you pour a little water on a Buddha Statue to Make Merit.  (Atone for doing bad things in the past.) 
The word “Songkran” comes from the Sanskrit word “Samkranta” which means to pass or to move.  13 April is “Maha Songkran Day” or New Year’s Day.  This is also known as the Spring Equinox where the day and night are of equal length.  During Songkran you make Merit for three full days:

  • 13 April – Maha Songkran Day – End of the Old Year
  • 14 April – Wan Klang or Wan Nao – Preparation Day
  • 15 April – Wan Taleung Sok – New Years Day

People will also pour about half a cup of water on the shoulder of others to give them Good Luck for the new year.  This has deteriorated into a Free-For-All Water-Fight.  Prepare for Songkran by placing all your Valuables in Plastic Bags to prevent Water Damage.  Wear light clothes and PREPARE TO GET WET.
There are also Sand Pagoda Making and Drum Contests.
