Damyang Bamboo Festival 2024

Experience Nature's Harmony at Juknokwon - Where Tradition Meets Festivity!

The Jukchwi Festival, derived from the tradition of villagers gathering to plant bamboo, takes place in the Juknokwon Bamboo Forest and the Gwanbangjerim Forest, designated as a natural monument, on Jukchwi Day. Visitors can enjoy various bamboo-themed activities such as bamboo rafting, bamboo water gun shooting, and bamboo canoeing, while strolling through the forest emitting phytoncides and negative ions. The Gwanbangjerim Forest, near Juknokwon, features towering trees over 300 years old. Visitors can also enjoy Damyang’s local cuisine on the grassy fields, watch performances, and participate in various events.
