Surin Elephant Festival
To commemorate both the importance of the Thai elephant and the local peoples’ important relationship with them, the Surin Elephant Festival has been held annually since 1960. Now an internationally recognised event, the festival is fun, elephant friendly and popular with visitors and locals.
The modern two-day event includes a variety of shows displaying the physical prowess and skill of the animals, such as Soccer games and Tugs of War with the Royal Thai Army. Elephants painting pictures, playing polo, and whirling hula hoops on their trunks are also incorporated into the show. The venue for the event, Si Narong Stadium and has been dubbed the “world’s largest domestic elephant village” by the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
