Ba Che’s Ban Vuong festival features local culture
The 3rd festival of Ban Vuong has taken place at the Dao ethnic community Culture House at Nam Son commune in Ba Che district, highlighting the unique culture of Dao ethnic people.
Ban Vuong festival is an important event of the Dao people in Vietnam, happening on the 1st day of the second lunar month to commemorate and thank the ancestors who gave birth to the Dao and assisted to 12 Dao ethnic families to cross the sea to new lands.
Only the Dao Thanh Y people in Ba Che district still hold the festival four times a year with the participation of local families. The restoration has particular meaning for the preservation of traditional cultural heritage of Vietnamese peoples.
Ba Che district has for a long time been known as a locality with great potential to develop eco-tourism in the northeastern region of the country.
