Bo Sang Umbrella Festival – 2019

Just as the name suggests, the festival is all about art and umbrellas! The Bo Sang Umbrella and Sankampaeng Handicraft Festival takes place from Friday, January 18 until Sunday, January 20, 2019

The handicrafts made by the local craftspeople will blow your mind away with the sheer creativity infused with boldness to create intricate, yet delightful pieces. Bo Sang is home to skilled craftspeople whose products range from fantastic fans to colourful lanterns and parasols. Look out for the magnificent umbrellas designed mulberry bark paper which is then hand painted, this is Bo Sang’s trademark style. Other materials used for these works of art include silk and cotton.

Come to the umbrella festival in the afternoon. This way, you can enjoy the amazing artwork in the light of day, and then stay for the illuminated umbrellas at night. Many of the umbrellas are lit up like lanterns showing a completely different side to these works of art.
