The Seoul Lantern Festival will take place along Cheonggyecheon Stream from Nov. 3rd to 19th, 2017. This year's festival theme will focus on the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games!

These beautiful illuminated lanterns will be on view along Cheonggyecheon Stream. Festival-goers will be able to see lanterns of Olympic figure skaters, short-track skaters, a ski jump, and much more.  

In addition to viewing beautiful lanterns, the festival will offer fun activities for the public to enjoy.  Visitors can hang wish notes, put up a wish lantern, or write a new year's wish note. Another fun treat will be the Seoullo 7017 experience zone and a traditional lantern-making activity. There will also be food stalls and food trucks operating throughout the festival.
