2018 King’s Cup Elephant Polo

The event will be held by the banks of Bangkok’s mighty Chao Phraya River from March 8th – 11th, 2018 and promises to have a full range of fun elephant festivities for the whole family including an impressive opening parade, children’s educational day, Ladies Day known as The ‘Bangkok Ascot’. Other entertainment

will include a pop up foodie market and a host of popular bands and DJs.

Now in its sixteenth year, the festival has become one of the biggest charitable events in Southeast Asia with over US$1.5 million (BHT 50 million) raised and donated to projects that better the lives of Thailand’s wild and domesticated elephant population.

A total of 20 unemployed ex-street elephants will take part in the event, during which they will receive full veterinary checks from the Zoological Parks Organisation of Thailand, under the patronage of His Majesty the King of Thailand and the Department of Livestock Development. In addition, all elephants are given essential vitamins, food and care which are not available to them during their normal daily lives.
