Seoul Arirang Festival
About Seoul Arirang Festival
As our proud cultural heritage, Arirang was listed as the UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage on Dec. 5, 2012, Arirang was not a simple folk song any more and we found how important cultural heritage Arirang is and it has brought all of us cultural pride and heartfelt touching.
To commemorate the 1st anniversary of listing of Arirang as the UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage, the Seoul Metropolitan Government and a non-profit organization, Seoul Arirang Festival Organizing Committee held ‘Seoul Arirang Festival’ focused on “Arirang” in Oct. 2013 to enjoy our traditional culture and art to the fullest.
Personally experience our songs and culture and fully enjoy our culture at Seoul Arirang Festival held in every Oct. at Gwanghwamun Plaza where the history and culture coexist.
