For nine consecutive years, this charitable event has helped raise money for the National Elephant Institute in Lampang. It has evolved from a modest tournament into a week-long extravaganza, featuring 12 competing teams from countries around the world.

The official opening ceremony on March 22 will be followed by a traditional blessing ritual led by chief mahouts to ensure luck and success for both players and pachyderms on the morning of March 23. The event will also boast a colourfully decorated northern-style parade before the week-long competition begins.
