    The 2017 Rose Festival will be held at the Theme Garden at Seoul Grand Park this May 27 (Sat.) to June 11 (Sun.), 2017.

    38,000 rose trees will be available for viewing at the 52,900 m2 (16,000 pyeong) flower bed in the Rose Garden at Seoul Grand Park’s Theme Garden. At this year’s festival, English Standard Roses, which are shaped like a regular tree, will be introduced and visitors will be able to borrow props such as bouquets, flower garlands and bridal veils for free.

    The Seoul Grand Park will extend the duration of the festival so that more people can visit the Rose Festival for a longer period of time and provide events that will allow visitors to build unforgettable memories.

    There will be weekend magic shows and the Rose & Love Concert which will include songs, performances and dance on the theme of love.

    Visitors who participate in the couple mug-making event can take home a memento that will remind you of the Rose Festival. Visitors can also submit photos that they took at the festival to an on-line contest. 20 people will be selected to receive gift certificates.

    There are other events such as the Love Language event where people can take pictures in front of a large wall with the word “Love” written in various languages.
