Located at the flower complex in Bukcheon-myeon, Hadong-gun, in Gyeongsangnam-do, the Hadong Bukcheon Cosmos and Buckwheat Festival is the nation’s largest autumn flower festival.

The 13th edition is bigger and better with 40 experience programs around the 420,000 square meters of flowers.

In addition, this year’s festival expands the expansive flower gardens around Baekilhong and Cheonilhong, as well as crop experience centers with sweet potato, corn, and sunflowers.
