Phuket Red Cross Fair

The Phuket Red Cross Fair provides unmissable evenings of entertainment for the whole family. It normally lasts for around 11 days and takes place at Saphan Hin Park in Phuket Town, in the same week as New Year when everybody is still in high spirits. The event is essentially a traditional fairground and carnival with dozens of interesting side attractions, temporary stalls and small shops where you can buy knickknacks, local arts and crafts, as well as food and souvenirs. It's become a firm favourite with locals and tourists.

Besides the nail biting rides, there is live music aplenty and dance shows every night. To promote the event, the Phuket Red Cross sells lottery tickets to raise money for charity. The lottery has become overwhelmingly popular in Phuket due to the massive prize funds, so don't forget to buy a ticket because in 2010 the first prize was a brand new house worth several million baht!
