The Ancestral Land Cultural and Tourism Week is a highlight with various activities such as exhibitions at the Phu Tho Library and Hung Kings Museum, the street music programme "Viet Tri Livemusic" in Viet Tri city, and a music festival of local folk songs.

Main rituals during the festival include ceremonies at the temple to offer incense to Lac Long Quan and Au Co – the progenitors of Vietnamese people.

The commemoration of the Hung Kings is a national holiday that takes place annually on the 10th day of the third lunar month, which falls on April 18 this year. The practice of worshiping them in Phu Tho was recognised by UNESCO as part of the world's intangible cultural heritage in 2012./.
