HÀ NỘI – The second National Mông Festival will be held in Đồng Văn District in the mountainous northern Hà Giang Province.

The festival will include Mông traditional, cultural and sports activities. There will be a costume show, folk singing, and a cooking contest, where Mông culinary specialties will be introduced.

The Mông festival aims to introduce the traditional values and culture of Vietnamese ethnic minority groups of the mountainous areas to tourists, contributing to the preservation of their unique culture.

At the festival’s opening ceremony, an announcement will be made about the cultural heritage of the Môngs being recognised as a national intangible cultural heritage.

The second National Mông Festival will be held in October. It will coincide with the Tam Giác Mạch Flower Festival in Hà Giang Province.

The Khèn Mông Festival will be a highlight of the National Mông Festival. This is a Hà Giang Province annual venue for panpipe artists in Đồng Văn Karst Plateau to meet, exchange, and present great performances to the audience. -- VNS
