Being the greatest rice basket of Vietnam, Mekong Delta deserves to be the symbol of Vietnam Rice. Due to the importance of Mekong Delta in producing rice, it was chosen to be the organizer of Vietnam Rice Festival.

Rice Festival in Mekong Delta

Held every two year, Vietnam Rice Festival aims at glorifying the commodity which makes Vietnam in general and Mekong Delta in particular known as a leading rice-exporting country.

Vietnam Rive Festival was organized two times in Mekong Delta: the first time in Hau Giang from November 28 to December 2, 2009 and the second time in Soc Trang from November 8 to 14, 2011.

With the aim of honoring and promoting Vietnam Rice, many seminars on how to introduce Vietnam rice to the global market took place during the festival. Besides, there are many interesting activities: displays, exhibitions and scientific workshops about wet-rice cultivation as well as photography contest.

Vietnam Rice Festival is not only an opportunity for enterprises to exchanges experience in producing and trading Vietnam rice, introduce new technologies and products to consumers and potential business partners but also a great chance to promote tourism in Mekong Delta. Therefore, organizers of Vietnam Rice Festival also focus on introducing culture of Mekong Delta through traditional and cultural activities.

In the opening and ending ceremony of Vietnam Rice Festival, there are many attractive art performances honoring Vietnam Rice and Vietnamese farmers. The process of wet rice cultivation is vividly described by graceful dances in bustling music. Besides, Vietnam Rice Festival took place at the same time with Khmer people’s Water Festival   with many traditional activities of boat race, qualified rice contest, “Miss Countryside” competition, so on.

The third Vietnam Rice Festival will be held in 2014 with more attractive and characterized traditional activities. Tourists will have chance to go further into this great rice basket and rich culture of Mekong Delta.
