Don Chedi Memorial and Red Cross Fair

Suphan Buri province is holding its annual major event, Don Chedi Memorial and Red Cross Fair, from 18 January to 1 February 2016.

The two-week fair highlights a multimedia mock-up war on elephant’s back, organised to commemorate the glorious victory of King Naresuan the Great over the Burmese troops. History has it that in January 1592, King Naresuan the Great of Siam defeated Phra Maha Upparacha, the Burmese Crown Prince, in a royal duel on elephant’s back; as a result, the Siamese kingdom regained its sovereignty from the occupation of Burma.

The event also features cultural performances on stage, and a Red Cross fair offering the best from Suphan Buri, an exhibition of public and private organisations and a Don Chedi beauty contest.
