About the festival
The Mango Art Festival is billed as Asia’s first and only art festival that combines art, design, and performance together. Organized in the Big Mango, the festival hopes to stimulate the Thai economy by turning the country into a travel destination for art and design lovers. Last year’s Mango Art Festival at Lhong 1919 gathered over 5,000 visitors from around the world.
In compliance with COVID-19 measures, all visitors are required to wear a face mask when visiting the festival. Hand sanitizers are also available in key areas, along with rigorous cleaning regimens in common areas and other high-use areas.
