Entitled The Happy Month of the Festival of Independence, the event, planned in the Village of Culture and Tourism of Vietnamese Nationalities, is organised by the managing board of the village with the participation of many village patriarchs, artisans, and village heads of Viet Nam’s various ethnic minorities like Mong, Thai or Khmer.

The cultural event will create a typical cultural atmosphere of ethnic peoples residing in the north-western and north-eastern area of the country, the highlight of which is the atmosphere of the market in the northwest with the theme ‘Son La kermis happily welcomes the festival’.

The space in the market will demonstrate the festival of going to the market, while the space for recreation will include traditional singings, dancing, games, food and sports which are performed by the Mong, Dao, Thai, Muong or Kho Mu ethnic peoples. The specialties of each area including brocade, fruits or spices in the northern province of Son La, will also be exhibited in the market by the local Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Coming from remote villages in the northern provinces of Ha Giang, Cao Bang, Tuyen Quang, Lang Son and Ba Vi District, the ethnic people will interact with visitors, instructing them on how to make traditional handicraft and play traditional games.

Also, within the framework of the festival, traditional customs and rituals will make an appearance again, including the worshipping ceremony of ancestors by the Mong people on September 2, village worshipping ceremony of the Thai people on September 3, and the programme Meal of Solidarity on the same day. All of these traditional rituals and customs demonstrate human aspirations for a better future and comfortable lives.

On the occasion, a musical performance praising the country and celebrating the national festival will also be jointly held by Son La Province’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Management board of Village of Culture and Tourism of Vietnamese Nationalities and various ethnic peoples like the Thai in the central province of Nghe An, the Tay in the northern province of Thai Nguyen, or the Muong in the northern province of Hoa Binh.
