Bonghwa Sweetfish Festival is one of Korea's prime summer festivals and celebrates the local specialty product of sweetfish. The sweetfish from Bonghwa are recorded as having been given as tribute to the king during the Joseon dynasty. The highest-quality sweetfish come from the upstream sections of the Nakdonggang and Seomjingang Rivers, where Bonghwa-gun is located. The festival offers numerous participatory programs including fishing, water play, a water fight, and agricultural experiences. Visitors who participate in fishing activities can feast on their catch.
