Date(s) - 14/04/2018
10:30 - 13:00


In 2018, the Lao and Thai communities celebrate their New Year – “Pi Mai” for the Lao, “Songkran” for the Thai – on April 14th.

There is a Buddhist monastery in Altlussheim, Wat Sibounheuang Theravada e.V., which is the only monastery in Germany run by Laotian monks.  This monastery is the gathering point for Theravada Buddhists from all over Germany.   As Pi Mai Lao festivities draw a huge crowd, celebrations are held in a community hall nearby.

When:  Saturday, April 14th, starting at 10.30am till about 1.00pm thereabouts

Where:  Rheinhalle Ketsch, Im Bruch 1, 68775 Ketsch

What:  Many stalls will be set up outside the Rheinhalle selling a wide variety of Thai and Lao food specialties.  I will be your guide on the various Southeast Asian food items on sale.  This is a great opportunity to stock up your pantry!  Be sure to bring enough cash to pay for your purchases.

After browsing the stalls, we will stop by the lunch buffet – a generous spread of authentic, home-cooked fare prepared by families who are celebrating Pi Mai Lao – be prepared to be overwhelmed by the amount of food and the size of the crowd!  As guests, we need to bring our own plates and cutlery, and give a donation to the monastery after we have eaten.

More details once the list of participants are finalized.

Online registration is now open.

Sokdee Pi Mai Lao!
