Introduction

The Jeju Orange Festival aims to promote the qualities of Jeju mandarin oranges, a local specialty of Jeju Island. Organized since 1981, it is recognized as the most representative festival of Jeju. Held at the same time as the Jeju Agriculture Fair means there is even more to see and enjoy. The festival offers double pleasure, as visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenic vistas of Jeju Island while savoring the abundant mandarin fruit.

Festival Programs: At Jeju Orange Festival, the Miss Mandarin Orange Pageant will be held to select an Ambassador of Jeju’s mandarin oranges. Another fascinating program is the fashion show featuring the dark red clothing dyed according to Jeju’s traditional dyeing methods. There is also a show of the year’s harvested mandarin oranges and an exhibition of the winners. The fruit-sampling corner is expected to draw a large crowd.
From morning till evening, a variety of performances and shows are planned for the central stage of the World Cup Stadium, including Samullori performance(traditional Korean percussion), and Nongak(farmer's percussion) performance.
The indoor exhibition gallery at the World Cup Stadium will feature mandarin oranges from other parts of the world and environment-friendly agricultural technology. Visitors can also take part in some hands-on programs, such as traditional dyeing methods. Meanwhile, a food exhibition will feature mandarin orange cocktails and other culinary delights prepared by major hotels in Jeju and an exhibition/market of processed foods.

Festival Highlights: During the festival period, hands-on programs (picking mandarin oranges) will be held at various orchards on the island. Since these are private orchards, participants may pick mandarin oranges within the weight limit for a specified fee.
Each orchard sets its own guidelines for picking: some may allow visitors to take what they pick, while others may require that all picked mandarin oranges be consumed at the farm. Regardless, picking the luscious fruit and eating it right from the tree is an unforgettable treat.
