With the theme “Flavours of the Southern Region”, the annual festival will take place at the Can Tho Exhibition Fair and Trade - Investment Promotion Centre at 108A Le Loi Street in Ninh Kieu District (about 150km from HCM City).

The event aims to preserve and celebrate southern traditional cakes, and build trademarks for them.

More than 220 food stalls of cake artisans and businesses from Can Tho City and 18 provinces and cities in the region will take part in the festival.

As many as 100 stalls will present traditional cakes, and the remaining will introduce regional specialties and cake-making products from the support industry.

Other stalls will display dishes from Japan, South Korea, India, Italy, France, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

Highlights of the festival include a cake-offering ceremony at the Tan An communal house in Ninh Kieu District, cake-making demonstrations, stalls with che (sweet soup) and traditional cakes from ethnic groups living in the delta, and a traditional cake-making contest.

During the festival, a conference on “Markets for Traditional Cakes” and a performance showing 100 ao ba ba (traditional shirts of southern women) will be held.

Visitors will have a chance to taste hundreds of kinds of traditional cakes, such as banh tet (a cylindrical glutinous rice cake filled with green bean paste and pork), banh bo dua (coconut-flavoured sponge cake), banh u (small glutinous pyramid shape cake), and banh duc (rice cake cooked with lime juice). Last year, the seventh festival attracted about 500,000 domestic and foreign visitors, earning VND250 billion ($10.8 million).
