"Historical Figure Festival"
The Historical Figure Festival was held for the first time in 2004 to provide insight into the Naepo culture, and to turn Hongseong-gun into a leader in the development of the Naepo culture.
The Naepo Cultural Festival held under the themes of "loyalty" and "people's culture" and it is a cultural experience festival that sheds light on the Naepo region from multiple perspectives. Since 2011, various theatrical performances have been given regarding major historic figures from the region such as General Kim Jwa-jin and Manhae Han Yong-un, and they have been revealing the unique identity of Hongseong very well.
It is a participation-oriented event, allowing visitors to gain hands-on experiences as their five senses are stimulated. It takes place throughout Hongseong in the middle of September every year.
