Fruitfull kicked off with a bang at Jim Thompson House last night. Across big tables laden with world-class, retro-futuristic Thai-Chinese dishes our diners ate, drank, and found their merry.
Today promises to be a day for all of that, and even more.
There’s plenty of food and drink onsite, so we recommend leaving the car at home and enjoying all there is to offer. Call a GrabCar to our place and you’ll get 15% off your ride (up to 40 THB) by using the code FRUITFULL40. If you are looking to make an entrance, use the code FRUITFULL300 for a 300 THB discount off a ride with GrabCar Luxe. Other discounts are available, thanks to Grab.
If you decide to go your own way, you can park at the Siam Motors car park. Make sure you stamp your parking ticket before you leave the event. Find directions.
Gates open today at 11am, and stay open til the afterparty wraps up around 2am.
If you already bought a ticket online, swap it for a wristband at the gate and we’ll give you a free drink to get you started at the Chang Beer Bar or Courtyard Cocktail Bar.
You can also get tickets at the gate at any time today for 490 THB. Bring the family—kids under 12 get in free with a parent or guardian, and there’s plenty of workshops and activities to keep little ones happy through the day.
Just remember to bring your ID (either Thai photo ID or government-issued passport) when you arrive for pre-registration. No ID, no entry. Check our House Rules before you come along.
Once you’re inside, a whole world of food adventures awaits.
For the foodies, you’ll find new street food creations by some of the city’s best chefs in the main street, a market filled with kitchen collectibles and fresh ingredients in the courtyard, a pop-up khanom Jeen cafeteria by two Michelin-starred chef Ice from Sorn upstairs, and the chance to meet Paolo Vitalette (Appia, Peppina) and Jarrett Wrisley (Soul Food Mahanakorn) at the launch of their new book The Roads to Rome. The epic, wanderlust-inducing tome follows the two chefs on their journeys through the Italian countryside. Ask nicely and they might even sign your copy. They’ll be in the Fruitfull Shop from 2pm.
Cool off with organic wines from the Wine Bar by Wine Garage, tucked under the trees near the stage in the courtyard.
Browse our courtyard Talad market and stop by one of the many, many workshops throughout the outdoor spaces. From line drawing to home composting, you’ll find all kinds of eco-friendly ways to pass the day.
Try something classic at Heinz Presents Mickey’s Diner, the debut of Chalee Kader’s latest outpost for comfort fare. Choose from staples like hot dogs, currywurst, and piping hot biscuits with sausage gravy.
When you’re thirsty, visit any of our onsite bars for ice-cold Chang beer or cocktails made with Hendrick’s gin, Monkey Shoulder whiskey, Stoli vodka, and a whole lot more.
On the big stage, live bands Yaan and Toomturn Molam Group will share their unique world sounds, and DJs Ben, FunkyPump, and Gonloha will be spinning throughout the day.
For dinner, why not visit Isaan? Chef Num from Samuay and Sons is bringing his new concept Mak Khang to the Jim Thompson restaurant for the weekend, filling the waterside tables with authentic, flavorful fare from the Northeast.
After dark, DJ Maft Sai (the man behind ZudRangMa Records and The Paradise Bangkok International Molam Band) is spinning tunes at our after party in Ayara Hall from 10pm. Chef Andy Ricker is coming along to whip up some late night snacks before DJ Supersonic (of Offline Disco Club fame) takes us from midnight to the wee small hours.
Tickets are just 490 THB at the gate, and kids under 12 come free. Come hungry.
