The Jeongseon Arirang Festival is a festival where nature, people, and Arirang come together every year to preserve the developmental success of Jeongseon Arirang, the first Gangwon Province intangible cultural heritage. In early October, the program includes overseas and regional Arirang (North Korea, Gyeonggi, Miryang, Jindo, Yeongcheon, Seodo, etc.), which contains the history of the suffering of ethnic Korean immigrants through the Jeongseon Arirang. The only Korean Arirang gathering hall has been prepared to accommodate the sentiment of the people, making it a distinct festival from other sound festivals.
