A painter paints a buffalo chosen for the Doi Son Tich Dien (ploughing) Festival, which is held annually on the seventh day of the first lunar month.

Buffaloes painted by winners of the contest will join the Tich Dien festival, a highlight of Ha Nam tourism, which also aims to encourage farmers to develop agricultural production and promote the building of new-style rural areas.

The Tich Dien festival features the importance of agriculture and the role of farmers and contributes to preserving and upholding the cultural values of the locality.

The festival began in 987 during the Le dynasty when King Le Dai Hanh decided to plough in Doi Son commune, Duy Tien district to wish for bumper crops. The practice then became an annual tradition held through many dynasties.

After a long time of interruption, the festival was restored in 2009 and has been held annually since then.
