The festival will draw the participation of a delegation from China's Yunnan province and provinces along the river.

The event will be centred in Lao Cai City, Bat Xat district, and many cultural and tourism activities will take place in other places like Sa Pa and Bac Ha district.

It aims to demonstrate the strategic position of Lao Cai province, linking the history of the civilisation of the Red River with the province, promoting its potential and strengths in terms of economic, cultural and social development.

Cultural and art exchange programmes between Vietnam and China, performances and exhibitions from other provinces in the North, an international conference, and a competition about composing theme songs about the Red River will be held during the festival./.
