Silk Phuk Siew Festival and Red Cross Fair

By • Oct 10th, 2012• Category: Shopping, Fashion & Apparel

Phuk Siew or Friendship Making, an ancient and beautiful event for the people of I-san has been practiced for over a century. As it is considered a very important event, Phuk Siew has therefore been organised together with the silk festival. As a result, this has become an annual ceremony of the people of Khon Kaen since 1980. “Siew” (a word for “friend” in Northeastern dialect) refers to 2 people who are full of great loyalty, sincerity and share a close relationship with one another. Nothing, even death, will put them apart. This relationship is not only supposed to happen among those 2 “friends”, but also that true relationship will be shared with others in their families, among relatives and siblings of the “friend”. During this festival, visitors will enjoy the opening ceremony procession, local silk weaving exhibitions, Red Cross Fair, silk pavilion, sales of OTOP products, join the friendship making ritual and Northeastern style dinner, beauty contest, local folk performances, etc. The outstanding and unforgotten spot of the event is an “arts and cultural corner” that will be full of various kinds of activities and entertainment.
