The annual week aims to honour cultural heritage of Vietnam’s ethnic groups and help enhance the great national unity bloc. As part of the activities to mark the founding anniversary of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (November 18, 1930) and Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23), the event has attracted the participation of nearly 200 people from 15 ethnic groups across the country.
The highlights of this year’s event, “Great National Unity” Festival at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism, during the opening ceremony, will be the programme "Colour of cultural heritage" introducing the national intangible cultural heritage of ‘Soong Co’ singing of the San Diu ethnic group in Thai Nguyen province.
The programme aims to preserve and uphold the traditional cultural value of Vietnamese ethnic communities and enhance the great national unity bloc, while advertising the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism as an attractive tourist destination for visitors from both home and abroad./.
