The festival will be held by the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism to honour cultural values of ethnic groups and the country’s cultural diversity.

The annual festival will provide a colourful space in which visitors can explore the distinctive lifestyles of 54 ethnic minority groups living across the country.

Its main activities include Soc Trang province’s culture and tourism festive day, a programme on southern folklore singing, a photo exhibition featuring Vietnamese ethnic cultural life, and a space displaying Ede ethnic musical instruments.

In particular, visitors will have the chance to sample coffee in a special area of the Central Highlands region considered the capital of Vietnamese coffee.

It will also seek to re-enact tradition festivals and customs practiced by several ethnic minority groups such as “cấp sắc” (maturity ritual) of the Dao ethnic group and a new rice festival of the Jrai ethnic group.

Furthermore, traditional costumes of ethnic groups will be put on show, helping visitors to discover the culture of ethnic minorities from across the country./.
