Entries are welcome from all ages, with cash and other prizes for three age groups: 0-6, 7-9, and 10-14.
Kids do not need to attend the fair or be present at the time of judging in order to enter. Download the colouring page, print it on A3 or A4 sized paper, and get creative!

You can also bring your entry to the fair and hand it to us at our Colouring Competition booth any time before 4.45pm as judging takes place around 5pm. Additional posters will be available for those who prefer to colour at the fair itself.
Managed by the British Community in Thailand Foundation For The Needy (BCTFN), Ploenchit Fair is one of the largest charity fairs in the region, and it has been a much anticipated annual event since the first fair was held in the late 1950s. All funds raised will benefit local Thai charities.
There’s something for everyone – games, rides and competitions for the kids and adults including a Shooting Gallery, Bungee Jump, Water Roller Ball, Hands Spin Boats, Giant Slide, Golf, Coconut Shy, Grand Raffle to name but a few. The main stage hosts a variety of excellent bands and performers throughout the day while a genuinely mind boggling array of food and drink is available from some of the best bars and restaurants in Bangkok.
Also, get all your Christmas shopping done early at Petticoat Lane Bazaar where some 70 vendors sell beautiful handicrafts, home wares, clothes and accessories, books, jewellry and everything else you never knew you needed. Tesco and Boots, have gift-sets, hampers and special prices.
The fair runs from 10am to 8pm. Free shuttle buses are available to and from Bang Na BTS Skytrain Station. Come join the FUN!
