The Tet Fair in My Loi village 

The Tet fair in My Loi village (Vinh My commune, Phu Loc district, located to the South of Hue city) is traditionally only opened in the first three days of the Lunar New Year. The Tet Fair has been preserved and maintained for hundreds of years, showing the traditional culture of the countryside there.

People go to the fair to exchange feelings and wish everyone and every family all the best in the New Year. Folk games are also organized to serve the fair participants. Thus, the fair attracts a large number of participants of all ages.

According to the explanation of the elders from My Loi village, the three-day market meeting on a high hill in the village is aimed to create a joyful spring atmosphere, and also an occasion to clean up the central market area, so as to welcome traders back to the market in the New Year, and be favorable and fortunate.
