Beneficial Agricultural and Forest Products Festival

The Hwabon Village Festival, anchored on the theme “Let’s Play, Hwabon,” successfully presented cultural contents based on the recollection of the 1960s-70s at the Memory Museum. The museum was remodeled from an abandoned school building (When Mom and Dad Were Young), generating acclaims among viewers and leading the village to be designated as a colorful village festival by the government of Gyeongsangbuk-do. The When Mom and Dad Were Young Museum features the lifestyles of the 1960s – 70s, the experiential games from earlier times, and the experiential foods of well-being, among other diverse events. Blending with the beautiful provisional station, the Samguk Yusa Mural Village, and the school of recollection, the festival features a great banquet of Hwabon Village. It will certainly offer memorable moments for all visitors including families, lovers and friends.
