    Hanoi to host first Bulgarian rose festival in Vietnam (in March next)

    A festival showcasing roses from the Eastern European country will arrive in Vietnam for the first time next month for a six-day exhibition in Hanoi.

    In honour of the special ties of friendship between the two countries, the Bulgarian Embassy in Hanoi and Vietnam-Bulgaria Friendship Association are sponsoring the first-ever Bulgaria Rose Festival in Vietnam on March 3-8 at the Thong Nhat (Reunification) Park in Hanoi.

    Bulgarian Ambassador to Vietnam Evgueni Stoychev referred to the festival as an audacious idea by the organizers during remarks at a press conference in the Vietnamese capital to announce the event on Tuesday. According to the ambassador, the idea of organizing a Bulgarian rose festival in Vietnam was conceived four months prior, thanks to the original festival’s popularity among foreign tourists, including those from Vietnam. The Rose Festival is one of the most remarkable celebrations in Bulgaria and has evolved into an international event hosting the thousands of tourists who flock each year to the town of Kazanlak in central Bulgaria to enjoy the beauty and fragrance of Bulgarian roses.

    The festival was celebrated for the first time in 1903 and is traditionally held during the first weekend of June, when the roses are in full bloom. Festival organizers in Vietnam say over 300 species of rose will be on display during the event, slated to run from March 3 to 8.

    The roses would be assembled into different shapes including a castle, a wall, a garden and a wishing well, according to the event’s organizers.
    Visitors will also be treated with art and music performances by Vietnamese and international street performers.

    Activities planned for the event include a rose exhibition featuring 300 different varieties of roses, street festival, parade of roses, music and food events, Queen of Rose beauty contest and talk show among others. 

    A Thang Long drum performance, lion dance, flash mob dance and balloon release are also on the agenda for the opening ceremony. Special gifts of 500 cosmetic samples made from oil-bearing roses will also be given out to guests during the event.

    Though this is not the first time a Bulgaria rose festival has been held in a foreign country, Ambassador Stoychev has said it would be the biggest rose festival ever organized outside of Bulgaria.
