Event Details

The biggest festival of November is the Seoul Lantern Festival. This year, the festival will run from Nov. 4th through Nov. 20th, 2016 along Cheonggyecheon Stream. Lanterns will be installed just above water-level for a colorful display. Not only will there be beautiful lanterns on display, the festival will be a great chance to people watch. This year marks the 8th Seoul Lantern Festival. The festival theme changes annually and this year’s theme is “the Historic Hangang River, Illuminated through Light.” The festival will feature lanterns representing different regions of Korea as well as nations around the world, as well as lanterns of popular cartoon characters, sure to be a hit with children and the young at heart. 

As 2016 comes to an end, the timing is perfect to make a wish for one’s future and the new year ahead. The festival will offer a chance for visitors to participate in wish activities such as hanging wish lanterns, writing a wish down, or floating a wish lantern. Take photos of the many lanterns that will be up during the festival, and cap off your evening with a stop at the food marketplace and food trucks that will be in operation during the festival.
