Festival held in Chachoengsao Province, Thailand.

Luangpho Sothon Worship Fair is held three times a year in the lunar calendar:-

1. Chinese New Year Festival is held by the Chinese Association together with merchants, civil servants, and the people of Chachoengsao, from the first day to the fifth day of the waxing moon in the Chinese first lunar month, totaling five days and nights.

2. Mid-Fifth Month Festival starts from the full moon day to the second day of the waning moon, totaling three days and nights. It is held to mark the movement of Luangpho Sothon from the river to be enshrined at the temple.

3. Mid-Twelfth Month Festival starts from the twelfth day of the waxing moon to the first day of the waning moon. Back in 1890, there was an outbreak of smallpox. The villagers at the time asked for recovery from illness with Luangpho Sothon, and held a ceremony to celebrate the Buddha image. The celebration has become a tradition. Presently, Chachoengsao Province and Wat Sothon jointly hold the Luangpho Sothon Worship Fair and the Chachoengsao Red Cross Fair every year. The celebrations and the procession of the replica of Luangpho Sothon by land and by river are the great annual event of the province.

Paet Rio Mango and Products Fair is held around March to April of every year at Phutthasothon School in Amphoe Mueang Chachoengsao, when mango trees bear fruit. There are booths of mango and agricultural produce on sale, agricultural produce contests, and agricultural exhibitions.

Chachoengsao Red Cross Fair coincides with the Luangpho Sothon Worship Fair in November of every year at the Suan Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Park Chachoengsao.
