The City of Gwangju recently said that over 100 tons of kimchi have been sold so far at this year’s Kimjang Festival.

From the festival opening on November 22nd to December 3rd, some 120 tons of kimchi have been sold through onsite sales and reservation services. The activity will run until December 16th so make sure to go down and check it out.


By the end of the festival the City expects the sale record to reach this year’s goal of 180 tons.

The City attributed this year’s increased sales to the launch of its online ordering service as it attracted more consumers in their 20s and 30s.

The Bitgoeul Love Sharing Kimjang Festival was first held in 2014 to provide citizens opportunities to make their own Kimchi, and since then the event has grown in popularity with the local residents.

At the festival, the participants can make their own Kimchi by using the best quality ingredients at affordable prices.

The festival sourced the ingredients from local farms near the Gwangju and Jeollanamdo area, such as white radish cultivated from farms in Gwangju, and bay salts produced in Shin-an country and more. In addition the Kimchi dishes made at the festival will donated to help the underprivileged in the region.
