The traditional festivals, customs, and practises of the groups, predominantly in celebration of the Lunar New Year, will be recreated, contributing to promoting their unique heritage and spiritual culture.

Visitors to the village will have a chance to enjoy traditional food and specialties as well as join in with the folk games of the minorities on the occasion of Tet.
