The most sacred Vietnamese festival arrives in April (March 03, 2005)


Artist Pham Thi Thanh.
The Hung Temple Festival, one of the most important festivals for Vietnamese people will be held with its biggest ever opening and closing ceremonies next April.

The Hung temple is located on Nghia Linh Mountain, Hy Lang Commune, Phong Chau District, Phu Tho Province. Every year, this national festival is held to worship the Hung Kings, who were instrumental in founding the nation.

Directed by the renowned People’s Artist Pham Thi Thanh, the five-day festival would take place on April 14-18 in Hung Temple in Viet Tri City of Phu Tho Province.

Exciting activities of folk games and well-prepared art shows featuring 3,000 artists are promising a successful festival expected to draw 1.5 million visitors.

Organizers said foreign art troupes from Sweden, China and the Republic of Korea were invited to take part in the 65-minute opening event, which would be televised live from the Viet Tri Stadium.

The festival lasts for 3 days from the 9th to the 11th of the 3rd lunar month. It not only attracts visitors from all over and allows visitors to participate in special traditional cultural activities, but it is also a sacred trip back in time to the origins of the Vietnamese culture.
