The Ban Phu Citadel – Hoach Cong Chat Temple, which was twice recognized as a national historical and culture relic site in 1981 and 1994, has not only become an important cultural and spiritual destination for ethnic minorities in Dien Bien province but also an attraction for Vietnamese and foreign tourists.

Twenty-five amateur arts troupes across Dien Bien will also bring to the festival performances deeply imbued with their ethnic groups’ identities. Many folk games and a cooking contest are also held during the two-day event. 

Visitors to the two-day event can witness traditional rituals such as a palanquin procession and the worship of Hoang Cong Chat, and join in folk games like tug-of-war, throwing “con” (sacred balls) through a ring, and pushing canes.
