Weekly List (in English) of Public Events in Pattaya?


Recommended Posts

During the Fall months, I heard/read that Pattaya government was having events scheduled for every weekend to encourage tourism.

I heard/read of such events occurring, such as a beach fun run and food festival, AFTER they occurred. 

I guess the announcements were made in Thai and passed to English speakers by word-of-mouth.

I wonder:  is there a weekly list (in English) of public events?  where, such as Beach Road from what soi to what soi?  when, day/time?  or, estimate with a caution notice. 

I did hear about the fireworks.  But, only got specifics from a hotel ad for its tickets available for sale.

Is such a list in a newspaper or online?

I emailed Pattaya Mail about a weekly list.  It replied, thanks.  But, still not such list in its bi-weekly newspaper.

I posted about the need for such a list on thaivisa.com.  The board deleted my post.  I did mention that its weekly list was a link to a newsletter that listed advertisers, but no events.

I have not been on this forum for many years.  In fact, since Pete sold FLB bar. 

I had to re-join this forum under a new handle.  I checked several likely sub-forums.  This sub-forum seems the closest to what I have been looking for.

Yes, I am living in Pattaya.  Due to being trapped in Thailand in late March 2020 by Thai gov's and Philippine gov's bans on foreign tourists entering and on commercial international flights.  My plan to leave depends on no bans and no quarantines, and maybe no health insurance.

So, what is going on here in Pattaya?  I like to add a little variety to my nightly gogo visits.

Thanks in advance.

Fab 103 fm do a daily news bulletin on You Tube major events are pretty much always well publicised.

The Pattaya News website is also a good source of info on upcoming events.

I can't say I have seen a comprehensive list of upcoming events recently, it's more a case of keeping yoir eyes and ears open.

When I registered an account, the forum directed me to go to my email address to verify.  I did.

I logged in and posted my query. 

Forum said, a moderator had to check my post before it would appear. 

Did not see a link to get out of moderation.

Today, I logged in.  Did not see a link to get of moderation.  Went to my email account.  Saw a 2nd email from this forum, which said that my registration was complete.  Went to the 1st email and click on the verify link again.  Logged into this forum.  Writing this post, I see a window above, "Your content will need to be approved by a moderator."

What is missing?

Agreed.

Pattaya News has category Events.  Best coverage I have seen to date.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Fab 103 fm on youtube tends to be very brief on public events in Pattaya.  My little portable radio does not pickup the radio station.  In any case, I am usually asleep until noon.

Pattaya Mail, newspaper for Dec 18, 2020, page 2, has an article "Pattaya businesses want weekly events to drive Thai tourism".  It mentioned some events without location, time, type of event, etc the following:

--  Petanque competition,

--  futsal contest,

--  Muay Thai boxing events between Dec 18 and 23,

--  start of the Naklua Walk & East [sp] Market on Dec 19,

--  Pattaya Countdown Dec 29-31.

Will have to chase around, if minimal information is needed on the above to attend.

It seems to me that the local government would be issuing a list of public events in Thai.  And some enterprising publisher and/or youtuber would translate such weekly events in English.

Like some tv channels (eg, bbcasia.com), one click and a complete list appears.

Thanks for comments made.

You have done step 1... Just need to do step 2 🙂

To emphasize a need for a weekly list, here is an example:

Bangkok Post, Friday, Dec 18, 2020, Life section published the following article:  "Contests. Freestyle flying birds. ... and Pattaya Tourism Business Association, is holding the first 'Thailand Grand Flight Championship' at Pattaya's Bali Hai Pier on Dec 19 from 9am-6pm.  More than 1,000 colourful birds of various species will be competing in five distances ranging from 6m to 14m... ... trophy from HRH Princess Chulabhorn ... Many booths will give special prices on their products.  There is no admission fee.  Visit facebook.com/welovepetsbypamornchai."

Of course, I read the above on Sunday.  So, I missed the event.  I would have gone if I could have planned it a week in advance.

Several youtube vloggers in their videos have asked each other what they were planning to present?  They usually get a non-specific answer.  I think they are looking for video ideas.  I made the suggestion of a weekly list covering two weeks in advance to one of them.  I received an immediate answer that it was in his plan for 2021.

I will make the same suggestion to other vloggers.  Also, to any likely web site. 

Feel free to offer the same suggestion to others, if you feel such a weekly list would be useful to yourself as well as others.
