On March 9, the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism announced that the first Banh Mi Festival would take place from March 30 to April 2 at the Ho Chi Minh City Cultural House for Youth, 04 Pham Ngoc Thach Street.
At the Banh Mi Festival, 120 stalls will host shops, restaurants, bakeries, and suppliers from Ho Chi Minh City, around the country, and even from overseas.
This event is to celebrate the importance of Banh Mi in the country’s cuisine while emphasizing the importance of Vietnamese banh mi to local and worldwide friends, as well as to create circumstances that optimize the abilities and creativity of craftsmen and bakers. More than 50,000 people are expected to attend the event to taste and savor banh mi.
It is the first time that the Banh Mi Festival is being held; however, it promises to offer a wide variety of exciting activities. The Vietnamese Banh Mi has long been a popular meal among residents and visitors alike, ranking high on the list of most appealing street foods.
