This festival celebrates March 23, 1906—when Trat was liberated from France. During his reign, King Rama V
made a treaty with France in exchange for French troops’ manoeuvres off Chantaburi Province. The King granted Pratabong, Siem Reap, and Sri Sophon to France in exchange for Trat Province and the islands and towns on the right bank of the Mekong. During the fair the King Rama V Commemorative Parade is held, as well as an exhibition showcasing the history of Trat. Local agricultural product markets and lively cultural performances are also part of the 5-day celebrations.
