Information to hand suggests that Hmong New Year in the North should be starting with new moon December 14 in most villages around the North.

Once I get some confirmation from the individual villages I will post the names & dates.

I did ask in Huay Luk on R107 a month ago & they said not allowed this year.
BTW Hmong New Year should be on New Moon I think, which was 4 December 2021 / 2 -3 January 2022? "1st day of the waxing moon of the first lunar month of the New Year," but household celebrations start on the last day of the old year."
Many of the Hmong villages around Chiang Khong / Wiang Kaen have had covid issues & multiple lock downs, so I would not be too optimistic for big open festivals.

Ahh great update and a big shame but understandable. I’d mainly hoped to see the Hmong karting! I do hope that some of the groups New Years celebrations happen this year but we’ll see I guess

New Moon in December is 23 December.
Hmong New Year should be starting then.

Or maybe new moon depending on the local calendar
24 November 2022.
22 January 2023.

Watch out for these dates.
