Lac Son district has made enormous efforts in preserving unique cultural values of festivals, helping attract tourists near and far to the locality, especially during the first lunar month of the year.

 Since 2018, Buddha Khuu Dung Procession Festival in Nhan Nghia commune, Lac Son district, has been retraced with several unique cultural activities.

The festivals meet demands for cultural, spiritual and religious activities of the locals. Besides, many festival activities with cultural, artistic, sports and folk games programmes help create a joyful and exciting atmosphere.

In addition to annual festivals such as Co communal house festival in Vu Binh commune, Bang temple festival in Ngoc Lau commune, and Khenh temple festival in Van Son commune, there are special ones held every three years such as going to the field festival in Yen Phu commune, Du Duong Voi festival in Vu Ban town, and Buddha Khuu Dung Procession Festival in Nhan Nghia commune.

Nguyen The Hung, head of Culture and Information office of Lac Son district, said there are currently 23 archaeological relics, historical and cultural relics in the locality. In particular, many typical relics with historical and revolutionary cultural values are associated with festivals with spiritual and religious values, becoming attractive destinations for tourists to come to explore and experience indigenous cultural values.

Along with promoting economic, cultural, and social development, the district has paid attention to the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage values.

Accordingly, the locality has paid attention to the restoration of festivals. Since 2020, the district has submitted documents to competent authorities to recognise three historical and cultural relics at the provincial level, including Dinh Bang relics in Ngoc Lau commune, Khe temple relics in Van Son commune, and Khoi temple relics in An Nghia commune.

Besides meeting the spiritual belief needs of the locals and visitors, festivals are also a healthy cultural environment, contributing to educate, remind people to treasure hardworking, appreciate production results, stay united, and help each other to rise.
