QUẢNG TRỊ The Festival for Peace 2024 is set to open in the central province of Quảng Trị with a host of special events to entice visitors.

Themed Joining Hands in Creating a Peaceful World, the festival, the first of its kind to be hosted by the province, aims to enhance the position and image of the land and people of Việt Nam and help turn Quảng Trị, once heavily devastated by war, into a destination for peace-loving people from all over the world.

Hoàng Nam, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee [provincial government], who also is head of the festival’s organising board, said it will be the largest event ever held in Quảng Trị.

He said that the festival coincides with the peak tourist season in July so he is hoping for a significant influx of visitors.

The festival will open on the night of July 6 at the Hiền Lương Bến Hải national historical relic site in Vĩnh Linh District with a special art performance on both the stage and the river, connecting the northern and southern banks of the Bến Hải River through the historic Hiền Lương bridge.

Ahead of the actual festival a special cycling for peace event was held on June 29-30 at the Hiền Lương Bến Hải national historical relic site and the Quảng Trị Ancient Citadel.
