The Donggang ferry was once a popular mode of transportation along the Hangang River. While it gradually became outdated with the development of highways and mass transportation, the ferry remained as a useful mode of transportation and the livelihood of people living upstream of the Hangang River. The festival commemorates and reproduces the lives of these people and their local culture. With the beautiful Donggang River as a backdrop, the event offers a wide array of performances, cultural events (honoring the Joseon poet Kim Sat-gat), and outdoor activities (rafting, hang gliding, paragliding, etc). The festival hosts many fun activities visitors to Yeongwol County can enjoy.
- Performance event: Celebrating performance, concert, fireworks, etc.
- Hands-on program: Catching trout with bare-hands, water sliding, canoeing, rafting, flying pungdeung (wish lantern), etc.
