The Thanh tra Grapefruit Festival will take place from August 31 to September 2 in Thuy Bieu ward in the central city of Hue.

With theme “Thanh tra - Taste of Hue”, the festival aims to honor Thanh tra grapefruit, a specialty of Hue planted in many areas in the city, especially Thuy Bieu.

The opening ceremony was held this morning, August 31, at Nguyen Van Troi Secondary School in Thuy Bieu ward with a special arts performance.

The festival will feature a delicious fruit contest, showcase products made from Thanh tra grapefruit and other Hue specialties, a space for introducing Thanh tra grapefruit trees, and a culinary competition of food made from Thanh tra grapefruit.

There will also be folk games and traditional arts performances and meetings between travel agents and orchard owners for them to connect and develop community-based tours and eco-tours.

The festival is organized biennially and this is the sixth holding.

There are some 800 households growing Thanh tra grapefruit on a total area of over 147 ha in three hamlets in Thuy Bieu ward: Luong Quan, Trung Luong, and Dong Phu. Aiming to improve the quality and promote the branding of Thanh tra grapefruit for tourists and for export, the Hue People’s Committee has hosted contests in designing local souvenirs and packaging for Thanh tra grapefruit products.
