September and October will see events dedicated to recognizing exemplary women who have made significant contributions to Hanoi in 2024.

August-September will be a busy time. The "Check in Hanoi" challenge will encourage residents and visitors to explore the city's cultural and historical landmarks while wearing the Ao Dai. Additionally, there will be an exchange with female entrepreneurs and presentation of the "Capital's Golden Lotus" awards to honor skilled craftswomen from Hanoi's craft villages and streets.

Throughout August, women and students are encouraged to wear the Ao Dai every Monday and Friday, and during special events as well.

The Hanoi Women's Start-up and Innovation Festival will showcase local agricultural products alongside a forum designed to engage women in shaping a peaceful and creative city.

Adding to the festive spirit, a folk dance contest is scheduled for mid-September. The grand finale will be the Ao Dai Carnival, themed "Hanoi Women in Integration and Development," where the city will come alive with a vibrant display of fashion and cultural expression.
