    The Seoul Metropolitan Government will hold the Bukchon Spring Festival in Bukchon Hanok Village on March 25, 2017, from 10am to 4pm. At the festival, citizens can participate in “Spring Flower Painting” and enjoy “Spring Picnic with a Commentator” in Bukchon Hanok Village.

    For the “Spring Flower Painting” event, citizens will complete a beautiful flower banner together by coloring the pre-painted camellias and azaleas. “Spring Picnic with Commentator” is a Bukchon Hanok Village tour program provided by commentators who are well-versed with the landscape of Bukchon. Commentators of the Bukchon Traditional Culture Center will provide a tour program in Korean to visitors who have booked a tour.

    In addition, the Bukchon Traditional Culture Center provides an extensive range of traditional cultural programs including Chilbo Craft, Traditional Fabric Painting, Making Traditional Liquor, and Mini-Concert with Traditional Musical Instruments.

    From 2017, the Bukchon Traditional Culture Center operates the cultural programs every Saturday. In addition to preexisting traditional cultural programs, the Center will hold a variety of seasonal programs such as plays and performances, and develop local programs.

    Since March 2017, commentators have been welcoming visitors at the Bukchon Traditional Culture Center, the Hanok Support Center, and the Hanok Village Library. Commentators provide a detailed tour on traditional Korean houses in Bukchon Hanok Village to tourists and residents who visit one of the three places between 10am and 5pm.
