Let’s Enjoy Hampyeong Butterfly Festival!
It's spring when cold winter passes, and the warm sun shines over the greens around.
If you want to experience nature a little closer, visit the Hampyeong Butterfly Festival.
Hampyeong, Jeollanam-do was a typical farming county with many farmland but no commerce or tourism resources.
When many young people left for the city, the local people thought of a butterfly-themed festival.
They hoped it would revive the area by showing how eco-friendly Hampyeong is.
This year, the 21st festival runs under the theme of "Travel in Spring with Butterfly" at the Hampyeong Expo Park from April 26 to May 6. It will attract tourists with events such as butterfly, flower and insect-themed exhibitions, outdoor butterfly flying, VR butterfly experiences and feeding parrots of love.
Many eco-friendly agricultural experience programs and traditional plays will take place throughout the festival along with diverse exhibitions and cultural art programs.
