Festivals in South Korea

Hello everyone,

What are the main festivals in South Korea? Are there art, food, music, film, or other festivals expats can attend and participate in?

When do the festivals take place? How long does each festival usually last?

What activities go on during the festival? Is it necessary to buy tickets?

Are there any other events that take place in South Korea that shouldn't be missed?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Hi there Priscilla..

I have just returned from Korea and would like to recommend the Lantern Festival.
It happens along the Cheongyecheon Stream from the 3rd Nov2017-19th Nov 2017.

It was really fascinating to see so many various lanterns of different colors and sizes.

I really recommend that you should go see it..
