Warwick Thai Festival returns this summer

Warwick Rotarians’ popular Thai Festival is set to return on the weekend of 10th and 11th July, it has been announced.

Working with partners Magic of Thailand and Warwick Racecourse, the Rotary Club is calling on the Thai community to return and have a great day out at their 16th Thai festival. With only 86 deaths due to Covid recorded in Thailand the team is working with Warwick District Council to ensure Covid precautions are in place so that visitors will be safe to have a great day out.

The format will be the same as previous years, open from 10.30am to 5pm, the racecourse will host Buddhist monks, boxers, dancers and musicians, with plenty of stalls selling Thai food, drinks, spices, crafts, and massages, surrounded by the sights and sounds of Bangkok.

Buddhist Monks will start the festival off with their ceremonies, and the traditional reception of gifts from the traders. On stage throughout the day will be a top class presentation of Thai culture, with dancing, lady boys, music, Thai boxing and cookery demonstrations. There will also be children’s dancing and a talent show as well as a play area.

Tickets will be available online with details to be announced later.

Thai festivals have been held by the Rotary Club since the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004 to raise disaster aid, and the club has continued support ever since, most recently during Covid when many people lost their jobs.
