The ‘Namdo’ province is well known for its delicious food, which is celebrated at this festival. Famous foods from the province’s cities and regions are available at the festival’s “recommended sampling stalls”, featuring delicacies such as ‘Mokpo Nakji (octopus)’, ‘Suncheon Yeomso-tteokgalbi (grilled marinaded goat meat)’, and much more. Not only will visitors be able to try some of Namdo’s mouth-watering cuisine, but you will also be able to visit an exhibition on Namdo’s traditional dishes that were served at the royal table. The festival location is held at the picturesque Naganeupseong Folk Village, and various other attractive destinations, such as Suncheonman Bay (field of reeds), are also located nearby.
