Autumn offering is one of the most important ceremonies held in villages across Vietnam. Every seventh lunar month, the ceremony is organized in localities of Thua Thien Hue province to pay tribute to ancestors, pray for peace and prosperity. Traditionally, it is not until the ceremony is held in Phu Xuan village hall (69 Thai Phien, Tay Loc ward, Hue city) that villages prepare for the event.

Although each village has its own regulations, the traditional autumn offering ceremony includes 4 main rites i.e. Tuc Yet rite, Chanh Te rite, Tat rite and Co Hon rite. In Kim Long village, the offering ceremony is held in the village hall which was constructed about 400 years ago. The structure was closely associated with the establishment and development of the center for politics, economy, culture and army of Dang Trong (the South Vietnam) in 17 century. It was recognized as province-level cultural relic in 2013.

On autumn offering ceremony occasion, the elderly and far and near villagers gathered together at the village hall to clean, decorate, and hold the tea offering ceremony. On the second day, they hold other important rites.
