Icheon Rice Cultural Festival
The Icheon Rice Cultural Festival, which is celebrating its 18th anniversary this year, will be held from October 19 to 24 at Seolbong Park.
This festival is expected to contribute to developing Icheon’s traditional farming culture into a modern festival culture, and it will also be able to promote Icheon Rice and revitalize the local economy. Events such as cooking rice for 2000 visitors to symbolize Icheon (phonetically meaning “2000” in Korean) and making rainbow bar-shaped rice cakes are continuously earning raves among visitors. The competitiveness of the festival is improved with images presented by integrating the five senses, and the number of Korean and foreign tourists visiting the festival is steadily increasing.
