The ninth edition of the festival, initially slated from May 29 to June 26, is re-scheduled for the latter half of July if the pandemic is brought under control. More than 40 art performances will be organised, gathering together a large number of artists, actors, and artisans.

It will feature a wide range of events, such as a craft design contest, the Hue Culinary Festival, a sculpting camp, an “ao dai” (Vietnam’s traditional dress) week, and a book exhibition.

The biennial festival aims to conserve, honour and develop traditional craft of Vietnam and Hue in particular.
