    The Rose Garden Festival next to Seoul Zoo, which celebrates its ninth edition this year, will continue to the end of June, presenting a dazzling array of dance performances by performers from all around the world until 10pm each day. This year’s Rose Festival consists of three main programs comprising a rose exhibition, performances, and a variety of events and experiences. 

    The Flower Rainbow Garden, which has been decorated as a beautiful walkway covering 2,500 sq. meters, will showcase over 30,000 blooming wild flowers of numerous species possessing their own unique beauty, including poppies, paniculata, cornflower, catchfly, phlox, and Spiraea X vanhouttei. As such, this garden offers a mood quite unlike that of the Rose Garden.

    Beautiful love songs sung by popular singers will continue to resonate around the garden, enhancing the ambiance of the festival of roses, a globally recognized symbol of love and passion. (14:00, 18:00, Saturdays and Sundays)
