On the afternoon of February 18, the Organizing Board of Hue Festival 2020 said that the Provincial Party Committee had agreed on the policy of delaying the organization of Hue Festival 2020 in the complicated context of COVID-19 epidemic.
In its rescheduling proposal, the organising board said it would be inappropriate for the 11th edition of the Hue Festival to take place amid the COVID-19 epidemic, highlighting the need to protect local people and visitors’ health.
About the expected time of the 11th Hue Festival, there will be two options. If COVID-19 situation is soon controlled, Hue Festival will be held on the occasion of National Day on September 2, 2020. In case of complicated epidemics, the 11 th Hue Festival may be moved to 2021 in combination with the Hue Traditional Craft Festival.
The Organizing Board of Hue Festival 2020 said that in the next few days, they will hold a meeting to discuss the official time and widely announce it to visitors, to the public, the partners and sponsors.
Previously, Hue Festival 2020 is scheduled to be held from April 1 to 6, coinciding with the occasion of the Death Anniversary of the Hung Kings (March 10 of the lunar calendar) with the theme “Cultural heritage with integration and development – Hue is always new ”.
