There was news that to celebrate the anniversary of the city's liberation (on April 19), a balloon contest will be held in Phan Thiet on April 24-25. However, this might have been for 2010 and not 2011 so check it out with your hotel.
Binh Thuan International Dragon Boat Racing Festival: is held at the end of April on the Ca Ty River with a 1km and a 3km race.
Liberation Day: is held on 30 April. This is the day when Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) fell to Liberation forces (the "communists") in 1975. It is a public holiday commemorated nationwide.
