Chiang Mai has a lively performing arts community. Several high-quality theatre companies put on regular musical and dramatic productions. The dance scene is particularly active from ballet to hip-hop, traditional Thai to Latin. Stand-up comedy has also become more prevalent in recent years but can still be hard to find. You will find them all listed here.

We list all events in good faith with the best information we have at hand, but please check with organisers to confirm the details.
