This is a sort of traditional folk performance that portrays occupations in ancient civilization in a rustic manner, such as scholars, farmers, workers, and traders. The “amateur” performers execute plow, plant, fish, bet, silk weaving, cotton bending, carpentry, spring buying and selling, teaching, and so on in vivid and appealing detail.

Performing the “Tu Dan Chi Nghiep” is one of the Tro Tram Festival’s distinctive features, bringing a lot of amusement to both locals and visitors.

The Secret rituals, which serves as the heart and soul of the Tro Tram Festival, begins at 12:00 midnight.

On the morning of the 12th lunar day, the villagers would organize a “Ruoc lua than” ceremony to pray for good weather and crops. The rice blossoms collected from the previous crop and worshiped in the temple are taken out and transported to Xa Loc temple to worship General Phung Lan Ho of the Tran dynasty, after which they are carried throughout the hamlet.
