Guild To Hue Craft Festival 2019

Every other year, the city of Huế stages a festival to celebrate the city’s rich tradition of craftsmanship. On stage, along the Perfume River and in the streets, the city showcases its legacy as Vietnam’s former imperial capital and the home of countless craft villages dating back hundreds of years
This year the Huế Traditional Craft Festival runs from April 26 to May 2. With a packed line-up of engaging exhibits and events, Huế Traditional Craft Festival 2019 promises to be the best yet. Here’s your guide to this week-long spectacle of arts and culture.                                                                                                      
Theme: The Quintessence of Vietnamese Crafts
On its 8th year, the Huế Traditional Craft Festival is highlighting the impressive heritage of Vietnamese artisanal crafts. The festival program for 2019 will showcase the artistry of Hue, neighbouring craft villages and Vietnam as a whole.
