Visitors to the festival are invited to experience traditional art performances and folk games such as cheraw dance, painting, cultural exchange among ethnic groups, making OCOP products on site such as knitting conical hats, molding pottery and making to he (toy figurine).

Earlier in August, the HPA held Festivals promoting OCOP and Agricultural Products associated with Hanoi 2022 tourism in Chuong My and My Duc districts to strengthen trade linkage between the city and provinces and cities across the country in the consumption of agricultural products. The city will strengthen trade links between the city and provinces and cities across the country by holding more trade promotion festivals.

The activities are aimed at realizing the city's Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion Program in 2022, and the Plan on Developing Agriculture and Rural Tourism in association with new-style rural area development in the city in the 2022-2025 period.
