Bun Luang and Phi Ta Khon Festival 2023 scheduled from 23-25 June

This distinctive festival of Loei province in Thailand’s northeastern region is also known as the Ghost Festival and is bursting with colour, culture, and tradition.

The Bun Luang and Phi Ta Khon Festival, commonly known as the Ghost Festival, will take place from June 23 to June 25, 2023, in the Dan Sai area of the northeastern province of Loei, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

The magnificent Phi Ta Khon procession of residents who dance and strike postures while wearing enormous masks imaginatively constructed from carved coconut-tree trunks, topped with wicker sticky-rice steamers that make them look taller and more hideous, is the most recognisable aspect of the three-day celebration.

On the first day (Friday, June 23), there will be stage performances, a cultural ritual, a spirit-calling ceremony, and food offerings to the temple’s monks.

The festival’s formal opening ceremony will take place in front of the Dan Sai District Office on day two (Saturday, June 24). This will be followed by a summoning of spirits, the great Phi Ta Khon procession, the creation of merit, and the firing of bamboo rockets.

On the third day (Sunday, June 25), Phon-Chai Temple will host 13 consecutive Buddhist sermons, as well as a parade of successive sermons from every hamlet in the Dan Sai District.
