Other activities include a trade fair, a street carnival, a seminar on how to increase the value of coconut products and a ceremony to honour coconut farmers, a tour of coconut gardens, Miss Ben Tre Contest and art performances.

During the festival farmers will have the chance to exchange their techniques for growing coconuts and making different products from the fruit.
