There’s much more on the menu than pad Thai at this huge celebration of Thai culture in Sydney

Whether your regular Thai dish is an extra hot tom yum goong or a more mellow pad see ew, you won’t regret a day spent at the food stalls and produce markets of the Thailand Grand Festival. This cultural celebration is bringing a little bit of Bangkok attitude to Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour for two massive days of feasting, shopping and traditional Thai performances.

Alongside the mobile kitchens dishing out perfectly charred noodles, fragrant curries and spicy-sour soups, there’ll also be a pop-up Thai supermarket, where you can pick up produce to recreate the dishes at home, as well as a bar serving refreshing Thai beers. The Thai dancers and other live performers will keep you entertained throughout your eating adventure, and there will even be a marquee where Thai masseuses will pummel out all your knots.

Got hungry kiddos? Stuff them with pad Thai and send them to the kids’ zone to play while you shop at Thai craft stalls or learn how to wield spices at the Thai cooking demonstrations.
