The triennial festival, which runs from July 20-25, brings together artists across the country, along with art troupes from Laos and Cambodia.

Within the framework of the festival, the organizing board will present ten saving books to Heroic Vietnamese Mothers, and 200 gifts to wounded and sick soldiers and national contributors in Quang Tri.

Prior to the art program, 800 local youths will light candles to pay tribute to martyrs at Road 9 National War Cemetery - the resting place of over 10,000 soldiers who laid down their lives during the resistance war against US imperialists.

A circus program will also be held by the Vietnam Circus Federation in Hanoi from July 25-27 to mark Wounded Soldiers’ and Martyrs’ Day.
