The Con Son-Kiep Bac spring festival 2019 is scheduled to take place at the Con Son-Kiep Bac special national relic site in the northern province of Hai Duong from February 14-27, or the 10th-23rd day of the first lunar month. 

During a press conference on January 30, Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and permanent deputy head of the organising board Nguyễn Thị Việt Nga said a highlight of the event will be the bell casting festival at Con Son pagoda and the launch ceremony for the Con Son-Kiep Bac festival on February 20. 

The launch will be broadcast live on Hai Duong television. 

The Con Son-Kiep Bac spring festival 2019 is also meant to mark the 685th death anniversary of Huyền Quang Tôn Giả (1334-2014), the third progenitor of Truc Lam Zen Buddhism, thereby popularising the values of the relic site. 

The festival will feature rituals such as incense offering in Con Son pagoda, as well as the temples of Nguyen Trai, Tran Nguyen Dan, Kiep Bac, Nam Tao, and Bac Dau on February 19; a water procession ceremony on February 20; and a worship offering ceremony on Ngu Nhac mountain on February 21. 

Chung cake wrapping, a cooking competition, and a clay firecracker display have also been scheduled.
