Ratchaburi Art Centric returns on August 10 to 12 with one of the coolest happenings in Thailand’s annual calendar of events. Artists and craftsmen from all around the province will converge for a three-day celebration of creativity along the banks of the Mae Klong River.
Sponsored by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Ratchaburi municipality, and Ratchaburi WE Art, the event highlights the famous art and craft communities synonymous with Ratchaburi. Multiple event grounds are divided into four zones and seven activities featuring: ‘Art cetera’ interactive art exhibition; ‘Art… licious’ showcasing the province’s tasty and unique traditional Thai food; ‘A(rt) coustic’ concert, and ‘Super Art Market’ with new designs by emerging artists.
Two activities are being organized in front of the Ratchaburi National Museum. One showcases ‘Ong Mungkorn’, the large sculpted water jars which the province is famous for and a DIY sculpture workshop to teach visitors how to sculpt.
Along the Mae Klong River ‘Dek Din’ sculpture activities will be held for children, traditional dramatic arts like ‘Nang Yai Wat Khanon’ light and shadow puppet performances, and concerts featuring Thai pop artists will also be held.
