The Lim Festival is organized in the communes of Noi Due, Lim, about 18 km from Hanoi. The Lim Festival goes through all the ritual stages, from the procession to the worshipping ceremony, and includes other activities. The most typical Lim Festival feature is Quan Ho singing, a special folk song, which includes betel offering, hailing ferry and others.
Lim Village is the “hometown” of Quan Ho folk songs, one of Vietnam’s intangible cultural heritages. In order to enhance and promote the tradition of Quan Ho singing, Lim Festival is eagerly celebrated among local residents as well as pilgrims from every part of the country around the 12th or the 13th day of the first Lunar month. Different from song exchanges in other places, the Quan Ho folk song festival is very well-organised.
