The Samui Festival 2019 will return in its fourth year, from 13-18 September 2019, under a collaboration between Surat Thani province, and public and private organisations.

The Samui Festival 2019 will kick off in the afternoon of 13 September with a carnival procession of elaborately decorated floats by the island’s public and private sector organisations along with a showcase of local arts and crafts, as well as cultural performances. The parade will march through the island’s landmarks and will conclude at Pru Chaweng Park, to be followed by the grand opening ceremony at 17.30 Hrs.

H.E. General Prayut Chan-O Cha, the Prime Minister will preside over the opening ceremony.
