Event Dates: During 19 May 2015 –25 May 2015.
Venue: At Klang Wiang Stadium beside Phayao Bus Terminal
          In the past, Lychee growers suffered from the concentration of production released to the market in the same period with high volume, unable to release the products out of the market on time. As the lychee has short shelf life, is easy to turndark on its surface and there are few buyers in the area, so the farmers had to face the problem of tumbling price during the production season. So the Province has organized such event up in order to release the lychee produced in this year.  The activities include a contest of lychee parade and best products of nine districts, Miss Lychee contest, contest of fresh and processed lychee, a demonstration of desserts with lychee, lychee selling, community market, blue flageconomy products, exhibitions including shows and entertainments on stage throughout the event.
