Saenggeo Jincheon Nongdari Festival
About the festival
Established in the early Goryeo Dynasty, Nongdari has been the one and only stepping stone bridge with one thousand years of history and is one of the most valuable cultural heritages of Saenggeo Jincheon, which is also nationally protected as Tangible Cultural Asset No.28. 94m in total length, 3.6m in width, and 1.2m in the thickness of piers, it boasts an amazing durability and robustness that has sustained the bridge throughout numerous floods and hardships for the past one millennium, despite its simple architecture of piling one layer of purple natural stone on top of another with a 0.8m gap between piers.
Saenggeo Jincheon Nongdari Festival has been held annually since 2000 with the primary purpose of publicizing the excellence of Nongdari as one of the most valued cultural heritages in Jincheon and encouraging visitors as well as locals to experience and appreciate the wisdom of our ancestors and enjoy the sweet and lovely summer of Jincheon.
