The blossoms are blooming and we are mid-way through this year’s cherry blossom season, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more flowers to be amazed and take selfies in front of! And what better way to enjoy the spring air and newly sprung flowers than with some makgeolli in hand? Thankfully someone else thought of this winning combination, and made a festival specifically for flowers & makgeolli.
When: April 29th – May 15th
Time: 11am – 9pm
Where: Outdoor Square of Goyang One Mount (website in English for One Mount can be found here) For directions follow the link and click on One Mount Transportation for a multitude of options.
What: Free tastings of makgeolli from the 8 provinces of Korea, a variety of food dishes and performances. Goyang is famous for its International Flower Festival which is held every year, and is one of the biggest flower festivals in Korea. This year there will be a makgeolli festival to go along with it, so you can get the best of both festivals. The flower festival is held around Ilsan Lake and more information about it can be found here.
Get out and enjoy some makgeolli in the spring air with plenty of flowers!
