(QNO) - The Hoi An Mid-Autumn Festival, which includes a variety of folk arts, has officially been recognised as a national intangible cultural heritage in Vietnam.
The Mid-Autumn Festival, which annually takes place on the 15th of August in the lunar calendar, is a special cultural and religious event in Hoi An.
On this occasion, a lot of products are made, which is the explanation for local traditional crafts and types of folk arts.
The Hoi An Mid-Autumn Festival is a community-based event. It is an environment where the traditional culture of Hoi An is maintained and nurtured, and where the traditional beauty of related cultural practices is preserved.
Hoi An will soon implement a plan to restore and promote the local Mid-Autumn Festival in the coming time.
Reportedly, Hoi An is making every effort to join the UNESCO creative city network; therefore, it is necessary to expand the living space for folk arts, including traditional festivals.
