There’ll also be gazebos where you can sample traditional dishes, local products, and even a massage and other wellness treatments.

WHEN: Saturday and Sunday, July 11 & 12

WHERE: Along the waterfront at the Rialto Markets


The event is being coordinated by the Royal Ambassador of Thailand in collaboration with the Thai Department of Export with offices in Milan, and the Eta Beta Produzioni in Venice.
