A week themed “Great National Unity – Vietnam's Cultural Heritage” will be held at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Son Tay Town, Hanoi, from November 15-23.
The week is being held to mark the 90th anniversary of Vietnam Fatherland Front (November 18, 1930-2020) and the 75th anniversary of Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23, 1945-2020).
The programme will be held from November 16-23.
The highlight will be an opening programme and a ceremony to honour 90 outstanding examples in the patriotic emulation movements and campaigns as well as in the building of cultural life in residential areas.
As planned, the opening and honouring ceremony will take place at 8pm on November 16 and will be broadcast via a VTV channel.
This year’s event is expected to witness many innovations towards the spirit of great national unity as well as the preservation and promotion of the values of cultural heritages of Vietnam.
In addition to around 100 people from 16 ethnic minority people living at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism, 150-200 other artisans will participate in the event.
Visitors will have the chance to learn more about the rituals and folk cultural practices of ethnic minority groups that will be reproduced during the week.
