Songkran HK

Rescheduled
12:00pm – 8:00pm
Free

The biggest festival in Thailand is making its mark in Hong Kong, with Songkran HK now in its fifth year.

What is Songkran HK?

Songkran HK was created by Hongkongers of Thai descent, who wanted to promote the rich culture of their homeland by bringing its most important festival to Hong Kong. Songkran marks the Thai New Year, with many days of celebrations. Much like Chinese New Year, Songkran is a time for families to reunite, share meals, travel and enjoy.

What happens at Songkran HK?

The event takes place over six days with a long line-up of festivities, including a Nang Songkran Parade, an amazing Thai food market, a fashion show, Muay Thai boxing, local products on sale, traditional performances, arts, dance and live music.

You can also try your hand at learning a traditional Thai handicraft, with over 10 workshops open to the public.

And of course, you can expect things to get wet and wild in the streets during Songkran, as during this traditional water festival people soak each other with water guns and have a great time in friendly water fights. Be sure to walk with a change of clothes, and don’t forget to put your smartphone or camera in a waterproof bag — you’ll need it!

This is definitely a family-friendly affair too, though it’s hard to tell who is having more fun — is it the kids, or the adults with water guns!

The action takes place at D2 Place, right outside Lai Chi Kok MTR Station, and admission is free.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
