The Princess Procession Festival is a folk religious activity of agricultural residents associated with two legendary historical figures during the period of the Hung Kings building the country, namely Tan Vien Mountain God and Princess Ngoc Hoa (daughter of the 18th Hung King). The Princess Procession Festival aims to reenact the story of Tan Vien Mountain God coming to Hung Mountain to process Princess Ngoc Hoa to Tan Vien Mountain. The festival is a type of cultural and religious activity formed and developed during the historical existence and development of villages and communes with spiritual and material products that have been preserved and passed down through generations by the people of Vi-Treo villages in Hung Son town.
