As many as 300 people, including artists and students, from 12 ethnic groups of 11 localities, are expected to take part in the event.

A Tet market in the Dong Van Karst Plateau in the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang will be re-enacted during the programme.

Visitors could taste local traditional dishes, enjoy folk music and games, and contemplate photos capturing the life and people on the plateau, a member of the Global Network of National Geoparks.

A pair of pan-pipes with the largest size in Hanoi created by Mong ethnic artisans will be displayed at the event.

Furthermore, a traditional swimming festival in the northern province of Phu Tho will be also re-enacted at the village, demonstrating the martial art spirit and resilience of ancestors.

The organising board will also host a full-moon day festival of the Dao ethnic minority people from Hanoi’s Ba Vi district to pay tribute to the deceased.

Two historical documentary films will be also screened during the month.
