'The 2018 Jeju Fire Festival, a wonderful representation of festivals in Jeju, is featuring its new look in 2018! The festival period in 2018 is : March 1st(Tur.) to March 4th(Sun.).

Therefore, the 21st Jeju Fire Festival will be held for four days from March 1st to 4th in Seabyeol Orum, Bongsung-ri, Aewol-eup.

The Jeju Fire Festival originated from 'banggae', the old pastoral culture that used to set fire to the mountainous grasslands to control pests and to facilitate the growth of new grass in order to graze animals; this spirit was inherited and developed into the contemporary festival that enthralls visitors every year.

This is the 21th anniversary since the opening of the festival in 1997, and, it has been defined as a festival representing Jeju's winter season.

The festivals reputation spread all over the country and overseas, and it became a designated festival by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism since 2005-- eight consecutive years! Following the 2012 Festival, Chamsari, a magazine specializing in festivals, also selected the Jeju Fire Festival as the top tourist attraction for two consecutive years!
As such, the Jeju Fire Festival is a festival representative of fire's hopeful rejuvenation, and informs spring in Jeju: awaiting visitors with a variety of programs.
