Visitors to the festival can enjoy the beautiful melodies of ‘Quan Ho’ (love duet singing), which was recognised in UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage of humanity list in 2009.

They can also play folk games and sample delicious local dishes.

The festival aims to promote traditional cultural value in Tien Du District and advertise the land and people of Bac Ninh to visitors from both at home and abroad.
