The information was announced by Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Phan Van Da at a press conference on November 17.

The festival will include 16 main programmes and more than 30 auxiliary events, to be held in Da Lat city, Bao Loc city, and several localities in Lam Dong province.

This year’s event will promote the branding of flowers and tourism in Da Lat and also introduce traditional tea and silk products of the province.

A new feature of the festival is that the Lam Dong Tea Week will become a part of the Da Lat Flower Festival after previously being held separately.

The five-day festival will feature a fashion week of silk and “ao dai” (traditional Vietnamese gown) and art performances.

A series of workshops will be held within the event to promote investment in Lam Dong, to discuss Da Lat’s development planning and to develop local tea and silk.

The Da Lat Flower Festival is held biennially. After six editions, the province’s flower growing area increased from 800ha in 2005 to 8,400ha in 2017 with output up fivefold.-VNA
