Tho Ha pottery village

Tho Ha village in the northern province of Bac Giang is one of three famous pottery establishments in Vietnam.

Ancient pottery vestiges can be found in many houses, walls and roads, which were built with the same materials including pottery shards.

Tho Ha’s annual festival is held from January 20-22 of the lunar calendar to commemorate Dao Tri Tien, the village’s pottery craft founder.

The first festival dated back to 1685, but it fell into oblivion for a long time until 1992, when villagers resumed traditional rituals.

The highlight of the festival is a palanquin procession that carries the saint patron and the holy mother to the village’s communal house. The procession is led by unicorn dance troupes and a musical band playing the clarinet, two-string violin, drums and cymbals, followed by three elders being cast as the Three Abundances of Happiness, Riches and Longevity.
