60+ Cultural Events at Hanoi Creative Design Festival 2023

A press conference in Hanoi on November 13 revealed that the upcoming Hanoi Creative Design Festival 2023 will feature over 60 innovative cultural activities. The festival, scheduled from November 17 to 26, promises to be a hub of creativity and inspiration.


Speaking at the event, Do Dinh, director of the Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports, emphasized that the festival aims to give visitors the opportunity to experience new tourism products and services that were once part of the capital’s industrial heritage.

The highlight of this year’s festival will be a new creative cultural complex at the Gia Lam Train Factory on the outskirts of Hanoi, which is expected to attract young people. The complex will feature a steam locomotive made in Vietnam that is considered the pride of Vietnam Railways in the 1970s and 1980s.

According to the plan, more than 60 cultural activities will be held during the festival, including photo exhibitions, seminars, and international workshops.

Additionally, a number of community events and creative fairs will take place at several main locations throughout the Old Quarter, including Gia Lam Train Factory, Hang Dau water tower, Van Xuan flower garden, Long Bien Railway Station, and Gia Lam Railway Station.

The Hanoi Creative Design Festival is an annual event held in the capital with the aim of implementing initiatives to join the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, promoting the development of the local cultural industry, and affirming the city’s pioneering position in integrating with international creative economic trends.
