A few more festival cancellations I learned about today. A couple were scheduled for earlier in the month, but I'll just add them here for completeness.
* Jeonju Sori Festival (전주세계소리축제), originally scheduled for September 23th - 27th.
* Chungju World Martial Arts Festival (충주세계무술축제) : originally scheduled for September 23th - 27th.
* Anseong Baudeogi Festival (안성남사당바우덕이축제): Originally scheduled for September 22nd through 27th.
* Bonghwa Pine Mushroom Festival (봉화송이축제): Originally scheduled for September 24th - 27th.
* Update: Ulsan World Music Festival: Originally scheduled for October 9th - 11th. Hat tip to commenter Jelly.
* Hamyang Watermill Festivals (물레방아축제): Originally scheduled for October 9th - 13th. Sometimes even I say "they have a festival for this?"
* Baekje Cultural Festival (공주부여백제문화제): I was actually looking forward to this, and had a preview post-dated for October 4th. Originally scheduled for October 9th - 18th.
* Jangseon Arirang Festival (장선아리랑축제): Originally scheduled for October 15th - 18th.
* Hoeongseong (sic) Hanu Festival (횡성한우축제): Originally scheduled for October 16th - 20th, though the website also says 15th - 19th.
It wins the prize for cutest mascots. I'm always tickled when restaurants, or festivals, have happy-looking cartoon depictions of the animals you're about to eat. Actually, if I hadn't read an article about this being cancelled, I never would have even heard of it. Scheduled performers included Son Dambi (I guess those cellphones will have to sell themselves that day) and Crown J (remember him?).
* Pottery Culture Festival (울주외고산옹기축제): Originally scheduled for who knows when, in Ulsan.
* Changwon Festival (창원페스티벌): Originally scheduled for October 24th.
A reader recently asked me if I had a list or knew how many festivals had been cancelled, but I said I didn't. Most of them aren't being reported in the English-language media---a lot of these "international" festivals didn't even put news of the cancellations out in English---so I just went to the homepages of the festivals I knew and checked, in addition to searching through Naver.
