Cheoyong Festival Events
Last night was the opening ceremony of the festival but don’t worry! There are events taking place this whole weekend until the closing ceremony on Sunday. The events held are part of a long tradition in the city and each district or “Gu” is represented. These culturally significant events will help you understand a bit of the traditions of Ulsan and entertain the family. Events start each day at 2 pm at various locations around the city.
The main location for the festival will be that Daldong Munhwa park behind the Ulsan Culture and Arts Centre/KBS Hall. If you are unsure of the area, it is just on the edge of Samsandong, next to the nam-gu district office. Traffic maybe congested a bit around that area this weekend due to the event. It is the building located in the lower left-hand side of the first image
There will also be a parade starting at 11 am at the Dongchun Stadium heading to Shigaetop in Old Downtown then heading up to the Daldong Munhwa park.
