The 2017 Cherry Blossom festival opens this weekend! (March 31)
The festival will take place in three main locations. Jeonnong-ro in Jeju city, Jangjeon-ri in Aewol, and at the entrance to Jeju National University.
Aewol Festival (March 31 till April 2)
The first festival to open is the one in Jangjeon-ri. It will start at 5 pm on the 31st with various musical performances. This will continue on both Saturday and Sunday with the performances being held between 4 pm and 8 pm. There will also be a flea market and other activities including face painting, a "photo zone", and plenty of food and drink.
Jeju City Festival (April 1/2)
The Jeonnong-ri festival opens on Saturday 1st. There will be music and other performances from 1 pm till 6.30pm on each day. As with the festival in Jangjeon-ri, there will be plenty of activities taking place throughout the day, a flea market, and loads of opportunities to eat and drink.
Jeju National University Festival (April 8/9)
Due to its higher altitude and, therefore, colder temperatures, the cherry blossom trees at Jeju National University don't bloom till a little later than the ones in the city. Becasue of this, the festival will be held a week later on the weekend of April 8/9.
Of course, as well as the festivals themselves there are plenty of places where you can enjoy Jeju's cherry blossom throughout the island.
