|Gwangju Kimchi Festival celebrates what could be called Korea's national food, kimchi. At the festival, visitors may sample a wide range of kimchi varieties, and learn how to make some, too. In addition, exhibitions, educational and hands-on programs will be held during the festival period.
Meanwhile, visitors to the kimchi festival may tour Gwangju, known as 'home of delicacies.' Thanks to its wide open plains and easy access to Seohae (West Sea) and Namhae (South Sea) waters, Gwangju continues to cultivate bountiful products like rice and a variety of seafood, which are used as the basic ingredients for the region's diverse delicacies.
