Introduction
Sorae in Incheon, despite its proximity to the metropolitan area, still maintains the atmosphere of an old fishing village and its importance in the nation’s fishing industry.

The Incheon Soraepogu Festival, held at the Sorae Port, has become such a popular event that it is attended by throngs of national and international tourists each year. During the festival, the roads in the area are closed to vehicles and transformed into a venue for a variety of stalls and events. In addition to events, you’ll find a traditional market selling fresh fish caught in Sorae and an exhibit of traditional fishing tools. There is even a live concert held in Soraepogu Port and Sorae Ecology Park.

The festival is well known for its large number of hands-on activity programs, which bring tourists and local residents together.
