The three-day event will draw the participation of eight provinces, including Lai Chau, Dien Bien, Son La, Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Hoa Binh, Thanh Hoa and Nghe An.

Typical cultural features of Thai people will be introduced to visitors during the event, including a show of their traditional costumes; performances of traditional festivals, rituals and cultural practices; displays of cultural and tourist products; and folk dances.

In addition, an exhibition showcasing photos, objects, musical instruments, and ancient books of Thai people will be open to the public on the occasion.

There is also a display of documents, publications and pictures on the daily life and traditional craft villages of Thai group.

Visitors will have an opportunity to take part in a wide range of sporting events, including stick pushing, ĎConí (cloth ball) throwing, Ďto ma leí (throwing seeds of Ďma leí fruit), and crossbow shooting.
