Geumnamro Street, located in downtown Gwangju, will be filled with different cultural events every Saturday.

 

The City of Gwangju announced that the 1st Gwangju Fringe Festival of the year will begin on April 22nd, tomorrow.

 

The Gwangju Fringe Festival was held every other week for 8 months last year; however, starting this Saturday, the festival will be held every Saturday until December 16th.

 

This year's festival will be held under the theme of 황홀한 변신(hwangholan byeonshin), or Fascinating Transformation in English, aiming to host 1.5 million visitors by the end of the year.

 

The festival, extending from the May 18 Democracy Plaza to Geumnamro, installed a tent theater for artists and provides various experience programs including art exhibitions, book forums, humanitarian lectures, street sports games and Namdo cultural programs.

 

Geumnamro will be a pedestrian-only street for the opening day and every 4th Saturday of the month with 8 different performance stages in operation.

 

Meanwhile, the Asia Culture Center will hold the ACC Gwangju Fringe International from June 2nd to the 4th and invite famous street performers from all over the world to participate, adding even more excitement to the already spectacular festival.
