The Festival runs every year during a short week. Azaleas, forsythia (캐나리), royal azaleas, and other spring flowers are all around. But what is so spectacular is the impressive alleys with 1,500 Korean Cherry trees turning to full bloom in Yeouiseo-ro, the street at the back of the National Parliament. So picturesque… and romantic too!

Yeouido Spring Flower Festival Yeouido Spring Flower FestivalIt may get sometimes overcrowded particularly during weekend days, so try to go relatively early. As a hint, we visited last year on Sunday but got to the place before noon, the Festival was already lively but there was no overcrowding yet.

A few animations for kids can be found at several stands, such as face-painting or getting a picture with Pororo mascot. You will also find many street-food and refreshment stands.

Go quickly while the flowers are at their best. Your kids will surely be amazed by the Spring beauty and you’ll get away with amazingly cute pictures!

Cars have limited access to the road around the National Assembly building during the festival period so that visitors can enjoy the blossoms and festivities freely. At night, the cherry blossoms are lit up with various colored lights and a wide range of street performances and art exhibitions take place.
