The government of Thailand has changed the previously-announced the date of the 2021 Royal Ploughing Ceremony public holiday to Monday, May 10, 2021.

A few months ago (2020-09-24), the government of Thailand had announced that the 2021 Royal Ploughing Ceremony would be observed on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, the same date as in 2020.

Until 2010, the government of Thailand used to declare the date of the Royal Ploughing Ceremony public holiday a few weeks only before the actual event. But, for the past decade (2019-11-19, 2017-06-05, 2016-08-14, 2015-11-03, 2014-12-08, 2013-12-26, 2012-11-30 and 2011-12-08), the Royal Ploughing Ceremony public holiday was announced well in advance, with one exception, in 2019 (2019-03-01), perhaps because of the preceding year's mishap (2017-11-18).
