The highlight of the festival will be an exhibition of flowers and ornamental trees from the Mekong Delta region, along with a fair showcasing One Commune One Product (OCOP) goods.

A contest on flower gate decorations and a beauty contest are expected to attract plenty of participants.

Most notably, a workshop on improving the overall quality of flowers and ornamental trees in the Mekong Delta region will also be held during the event.

Artists from the southern region will perform cải lương (reformed opera), đờn ca tài tử (southern traditional music), and folk songs during the festival.

Both a market on paper flowers and a flower arrangement contest are also on the agenda.

Located by the banks of the Tien River in Dong Thap province, Sa Dec flower village is widely known as the kingdom of flowers in the Mekong Delta. It provides a variety of flowers to markets, especially during the spring season.

The Dong Thap provincial People’s Committee will hold an event for the first time, in hopes of drawing a large number of tourists to the area.
