Starting with the opening ceremony on the first day, the festival will include a bibimbap feast and an exhibition on traditional artworks, costumes, handicrafts, and paper and pens in the main venue of the Insa Art Center.

Visitors can also participate in making ceramics, ornaments and traditional paper, and enjoy parades of "hanbok," the Korean traditional attire, and Korean traditional music performances.
