The festival is part of activities to mark the Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23) and respond to the city’s nomination to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.

An exhibiting area will be set up to introduce local traditional craft villages like Van Phuc silk village, Bat Trang pottery village, Phu Vinh bamboo and rattan village, and Ha Thai lacquer village. Besides, the villages’ modern products that meet demands of domestic and foreign markets will be nudged closer to the visitors.

In addition, a traditional art space will offer an opportunity for local residents and tourists to discover the city’s historical values, art and efforts to preserve traditional paintings such as those of Hang Trong, Kim Hoang and Dong Ho. The area will also introduce the city’s landscapes and cultural heritages through paintings by disabled artists, women and children.

Within the framework of the festival, a wide range of activities are scheduled to popularize local intangible cultural heritages./.
