Sweet Grape & Best of Damnoen Saduak Fair
 

Date: March 1-31, 2012
Venue: Wat Chotikaram Pier, Amphoe Damnoen Saduak district, Ratchaburi province
 
The Sweet Grape & Best of Damnoen Saduak Fair presents an excellent opportunity to shop for good buys, particularly fresh agricultural products and native products from each of the sub-districts (tambon) of Ratchaburi participating in the One Tambon One Product - OTOP programme being promoted by the Thai government.

Following the visit to the fair, take a leisurely cruise along the waterways of Damnoen Saduak. Retrace the historic journeys made by King Rama IV and King Rama V. During his reign, King Rama IV had a 32 km long canal dredged at Damnoen Saduak. The canal connects the Mae Klong River and the Tacheen River.

Archaeological evidence found in the province suggests that in times past, given the region’s proximity to the Thai-Burmese border, the town of Ratchaburi was a commercial port and popular meeting point for traders.
Ratchaburi province is also home to several ethnic tribes, who despite their varied beliefs and way of life, live together in peace and harmony. The province presents a rich and varied cultural landscape, much of which has been preserved and can still be seen today.

Ratchaburi - 'land of fruit and Thai life by the riverside' offers history, culture, way of life, beautiful handicrafts and natural splendour in the form of caves, streams, forests and mountains. It is without a doubt a colourful destination to explore.
 
Fair Highlights:
- A colourful boat procession
- Sweet Grape Contest
- Fruit Contest
- Food Contests
- Delicious Kuay Teow Reua boat noodles
- Kuay Teow Reua boat-noodles eating competition
- Miss Sweet Grape beauty contest
- Folk sports
- Sales of OTOP products
