Hundreds of artisans, performers and athletes from six provinces Hoa Binh, Son La, Phu Tho, Binh Phuoc, Thanh Hoa and Hanoi City will join the festival. 

An art troupe from Lao People's Democratic Republic is expected to participate in the festival, according to the organisation.

The 2nd festival is held to honour the culture of the ethnic group, which is rich in tradition. It will help preserve and promote the Muong identity as a united and diversified culture present across the whole nation. 

The festival is also an opportunity for the artisans, performers and athletes to exchange and share traditional and folk art and sports. 

It will contribute to raising awareness of ethnic people at all levels to preserve and develop Vietnamese ethnic culture meeting the country's sustainable development requirements.

The festival will include art performances, traditional costume shows, Mường cồng chiêng (gong) performance, craft demonstration, and cultural ceremonies.

An exhibition entitled Đặc Trưng Văn Hóa Dân Tộc Mường Trong Cộng Đồng Văn Hóa Các Dân Tộc Việt Nam (Muong Culture in Vietnamese Ethnic Groups) will be held to highlight the festival and showcase the cultural lifestyle of the Mường community.
