The festival is hosted by Busan Metropolitan City and organized by the Busan Culture & Tourism Festival Organizing Committee and the Busan Agricultural Technology Center.

The 759,000m² of yuchae flowers, created in 2011, is the largest collection in Korea. The Busan Nakdong River Yuchae (Canola) Flower Festival, which began in 2012, is held every April during the blooming season.

A joint wedding ceremony for 10 couples will be held at the canola flower field as part of the opening event of the festival on April 6 at 2:00 p.m. Married or engaged couples, who haven’t had their wedding ceremony yet can submit their application at http://www.bfo.or.kr (Korean).

The ceremony titled, ‘Yuchae Flower Bride’ will leave an impression and happiness on the wedding couples and their guests.

The festival will feature a variety of activities including music performances, photo zones, photo exhibition, hanbok fashion show, riding donkey, flower field walks, Yuchae flower train and a food court and food truck, and more.

The admission to the festival is free but there are some paid events.

Thanks to the good response of the last year’s night opening program, the night opening hours will be expended one hour longer from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. this year. The colorful lights and music will make the scenes more enjoyable for visitors.

How to get there: Take Metro Line No. 3 to Gangseo-gu Office Station, then leave by Exit No. 2, or take Bus Nos. 123, 127, 128-1, or 130 and get off at Gangseo-gu Office, which is about a 15 minute walk from the park.

Liquid Arts+15 (feat: Yo Soul Singer Whitney Sol w/ Pounamu) @ Ovantgarde

Liquid Arts Open Stage Open Stage will return on Saturday April 13th at 8:00pm at the Ovantgarde in the Kyungsung University area. Let your spring fever lead you here for another night of performances across any & all art mediums: poetry, words & all kinds of stories to musical acts, short films & other kinds of creative bits, brought to the stage by folks right out of the crowd.

For Liquid Arts+15, we are thrilled to be featuring another Seoul based artist: Yo Soul Singer Whitney Sol with Pounamu accompanying on acoustic guitar. They will be playing the opening set beginning promptly at 8pm. So, come on out with your usual Busan love, lend your ears, & link up with these two artists.

My cohost for Liquid Arts+15 will be the wonderfully talented and super cool Leah Barbata.

This will be our 113th event since 2000. We have held 51 Words Only events and 47 Poetry Plus events.

What is the Liquid Arts Open Stage?

Well, it’s an evening of performances across whatever artistic endeavors performers wish to contribute: spoken word and storytelling, comedy, music, theater, improv, dance, and whatever mish-mash that can be dreamed up. Here is a partial list of how to approach this event and what we hope to attract:

-Aspiring performers who have very little or no stage experience.

-Performers who are new to Korea but who have not had a chance to be on stage & introduce their talents to the community.

-Veteran Busan performers who are unable to attend the other weeknight open mics in Busan.

-Veteran performers seeking to present raw material or branch out into other genres.

-Performers looking to create collaborative work either within a particular discipline like co-songwriting or across disciplines like theater & music or poetry & music or music & dance.

-Theater folks can do original or classic scenes, with or without scripts, rehearsed or not, whatever.

We do sign ups at the event and time allotment will be determined once we see how many folks want to perform.

Old Skool Directions: KSU is stop 212 on the Green Line. Go up & out exit 3. Walk straight past Starbucks. Take the first right. Go 1 block. Turn right. Turn right into the first little alley. It’s on the left. Go down the steps.

Plus in between rounds, we will have a Beer Bonus round where one team can win a free pitcher of Cass or OB.

We’ll be starting the quiz at approximately 9:00, and it’ll be done before 11:00 so for those of you coming from outside of Gwangan, you can hightail it to your bus or subway to stiff over the taxi drivers–or if you want to keep drinking, nobody’s stopping you.

Following, trivia, come on down for the newest open mic in town starting around 11 p.m.
