TET Fair 2017 features new, traditional markets
This year’s annual – TET Fair 2017 – will officially opened its doors on January 18 at the Vietnam Culture and Arts Exhibition Centre in Hanoi, with new events and newcomers joining the staples of the weeklong annual spring tradition.
As is typical, fairgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy the markets that feature items most often use during Tet such as traditional five-fruit trays, offerings to worship Tao Quan (the Kitchen God) and other time-honoured gifts.
The fair running January 18-24 will be arranged into a wide variety of interesting markets such as Five Fruit, Ong Do (Calligraphy), Gift, Tet Greeting, Tet Specialty, Consumer, Good Luck, Ceramics and Silk.
In addition, there will be numerous cultural festivities, art exchanges and song and dance performances to welcome the New Lunar Year as well as the 87th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of Vietnam.
