    La Fête Festival 2011: A great come back
    Nithi Kaveevivitchai

    BANGKOK, 13 January 2011 (NNT) – The French Embassy has revealed that the annual cultural festival La Fête, which usually takes place in Bangkok every June, is now once again back in town, but this year it will be held from February 9 to April 10.

    With over 300,000 visitors every year, La Fête has become one of the most popular events in Thailand, covering a wide range of cultural and art activities. The festival features theater performances, classical music, circus shows, rock concerts, contemporary and hip-hop dances, puppet shows, photography exhibitions, films, fashion exhibitions, gourmet dining and many others.

    According to Mr Alain Gavillet, Press Attaché of the French Embassy, this year’s La Fête has been extended to 7 other cities in the kingdom, including Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, Pattaya and Koh Samui, with an aim to create a better understanding of French culture and tighten the long-standing Thai-French relations.

    Mr Gavillet further added that many events of La Fête are free of charge to allow Thai people to fully enjoy being a part of this great festival. Visitors can also attend the special events throughout the festival, such as the Valentine’s Day cinema-picnic at the Museum Siam, the ‘Fashion’ exhibition at the Bangkok Art & Cultural Center on February 18-April 10, the ‘Tuk Tuk 26’ show in various areas of Bangkok on February 18-19 and an exhibition of photos of Paris at the Alliance Française in Bangkok on February 26-April 3.

    La Fête was postponed last year due to the political turmoil; however, for its comeback this year, it has become even greater than all other previous arrangements. It was named not only one of the most important cultural events within Thailand but also one of the most important cultural festivals launched by France in Asia. Over 80 percent of satisfied spectators consider La Fête as one of Bangkok’s major cultural events and also a good reflection of French contemporary creativity.
