Moyang Fortress Preservation Society / Social organizations of Gochang
Gochang Moyang Fortress Festival has been held since 1973 to inspire admiration for the ancestors who made great efforts in building the fortress, develop local culture, and encourage love and pride for Gochang residents. Main events include a celebration and memorial ceremony, with additional events ranging from a pansori performance and farming music to folk games and archery. Many people participate in the Dapseongdori event, where participants carry a rock on top of their heads and walk around the fortress three times. Doing this is said to cure all illnesses, grant a long and healthy life, and allow one into heaven.
