The annual Christmas fair to raise funds for the Royal British
Legion and other organizations was held for the last time last year at the
Citylife Gardens. This year JJ Market is hosting the event and it is
expected to be another high quality local fair featuring great food, fun,
entertainment and shopping with proceeds benefitting charities of the Royal
British Legion, which includes the Thai Veterans Hospital in Bangkok and
Lanna Care Net, which includes McKean Rehabilitation Center in Chiang Mai.
The venue is a large, shady Lanna-style plaza with excellent parking,
toilets and good handicap accessibility. It’s an inviting and pleasant place
to shop for holiday gifts, enjoy local culture, sample cuisine from
throughout the world and learn more about the activities of many local
charities. Over 150 stalls are expected with a food court, a
business/charity section and a large secondhand flea market area that is
hugely popular every year.
The Chedi will be on hand offering their fabulous afternoon teas as well as
relaxing massages from their spa, the d2 Hotel will be offering fabulous
cocktails mixed by their award winning bartender, wine from WineCNX, food
from the Steak House, silk and cotton textiles from Studio Naenna, and of
course, the Care for Dogs Adoption fair with lots of very cute puppies.
There will be live auctions for vouchers from the Chedi, Tamarind Village,
Rachamanka, Mae Taeng Elephant Park and many others as well as a silent
auction and performances from the incomparable Ana Gracey. The fair will be
held at JJ Market on November 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information
