Date: 27th to 29th of the 8th lunar month
This festival is held annually at the communal house, at 14
Nguyen Cong Tru Road, Vinh Thanh Quarter, Rach Gia Town.
It is dedicated to the memory of Nguyen Trung Truc, a hero
celebrated for his services in fighting against aggressors to
protect the country. Before losing his life, he made a very
famous statement, "Only when all the grass in Vietnam is
pulled up will there be no more Vietnamese people to fight
against the French aggressors."
Every year, on the anniversary of his death, thousands of
visitors attend the festival and pray to Nguyen Trung Truc.
The Co Hoa Festival (the ceremony of staging a procession for
a throne) is held on the 28th of the 8th lunar month. The
communal house also provides accommodations for the groups of
visitors who attend the festival.
