Elephant Parade exhibition and courses



The Elephant Parade House is the main shop in Chiang Mai from the Elephant Parade organization. Elephant Parade is the world’s largest open-air art exhibition of painted elephant statues and seeks to attract public awareness to support Asian elephant conservation. Artists from around the world have contributed with their own painted elephant design in order to support the conservation of elephants in South East Asia. The Elephant Parade House in Chiang Mai opened a year ago and became the home for everyone who wants to learn more about the conservation programs in a fun way.


Be creative with the elephant painting course!

Especially for kids, this is a must-do activity in Chiang Mai because the whole exhibition is very colorful and you can even participate in a real elephant painting course. When we arrived at the Elephant Parade House it became clear that this is something to do for all ages! The young and older will experience here that painting a miniature elephant can be very creative. Don’t worry if you don’t have any idea how to paint an elephant. Experienced staff from the Elephant Parade are there to assist you and you can always take someone else’s idea into consideration.

Many of the elephants painted and shown in the gallery were painted by famous artists from around the world, and when you look around you will certainly recognize some of your favorites.  The great thing about this project is that you learn to understand more about elephants while your playing. There are interactive screens with information about the Elephant conservation program, and around the premises, everything is built to expose the elephants’ habitat.
