During the 5-day festival, the province received more than 600,000 visitors, 50% higher than last year. The tourism event was held to strengthen tourism cooperation between Dong Thap with other provinces and cities in the Mekong Delta as well as the rest of the country.

On this occasion, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism issued a decision to name a complex of tombs and temples of Do Cong Tuong, a local man as a national relic site. The complex includes a temple, guest houses and tombs which were built with solid materials and an architectural style of the Nguyen Dynasty in the 19th century. Many other activities such as tai tu (southern amateur singing) performances, calligraphy writing on lotus leaves, cock-fighting, folklore games and photo exhibitions were included.

A display about Cao Lanh-Hoi An was set up to promote the culture and tourism of Dong Thap and Quang Nam provinces and to strengthen their relationship.
