The Doan Ngo Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival or the day for killing insects, is observed on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month. This year, it falls on June 10th in the Gregorian calendar.

+ Offering sacrifices to ancestors

+ Killing insects in the body by food

+ Planting and checking trees

+ Herbal baths

+ Seawater baths

Throughout history, the Vietnamese have prepared unique dishes for important celebrations to honor ancestors and bond with family.

The foods enjoyed during the Doan Ngo Festival are diverse and flavorful, showcasing regional characteristics.


Vietnamese Fermented Glutinous Rice – Cơm Rượu Nếp

Fermented glutinous rice is a traditional dish for the Doan Ngo Festival in Vietnam. People believe that the spicy flavor of this dish can get rid of harmful parasites in the body and prevent diseases.

Fermented glutinous rice is commonly crafted from glutinous rice, such as black rice or yellow glutinous rice, and is renowned for its unique colors that symbolize luck and wealth.

Cooking fermented sticky rice requires perseverance and commitment to achieve delicious results. Although it originates from fermented sticky rice, the cooking method sometimes differs between regions. The main difference lies in the appearance; glutinous rice wine is separated into grains in the North, pressed into blocks in the Central region, and shaped into round balls in the South.

Duck Meat

Duck meat is essential during the Doan Ngo festival in Central Vietnam. People believe that duck meat has cooling properties, helping the body stay cool and nourished during the hot days of the 5th lunar month. According to some beliefs, duck meat is said to become tastier and fattier starting from the 5th day of the 5th lunar month. During this time, the beef also loses its undesirable smell. Additionally, according to traditional medicine, duck meat can help replenish the body after illness, treat convulsions, reduce fever, and alleviate acne.
