Korea Autumn Flower Blossom: Daegu Chrysanthemum Festival

Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Festival!
One of Korea’s Most Coveted Autumn Festival



Finally, it’s the time of the year! Our one of the most anticipated events in fall: Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Festival! Opened in 2002, Daegu Arboretum was once a landfill before it became a beautiful forest located in the city. It is beautiful all year around. In Spring and Summer, the entire place exudes its exuberant green energy. During the fall, as you can imagine, the entire place turns its colors. Especially with mountains located right behind the arboretum, it looks absolutely stunning. 
It’s highly accessible by public transportation. So, please come by and let’s celebrate this fall together!


At the festival, most chrysanthemum flowers are planted in the main square. Whether you come from the parking lot or you take a side trail from the entrance, you will directly pass the square.


The flowers are decorated into many interesting structures to create a fairly-tale-like atmosphere. It is also a great chance to look at different types and colors of chrysanthemum flowers. For Koreans, this flower is one of the most popular flowers that symbolizes the peak of fall.



Daegu arboretum is spacious. If you are coming with your friend or family, an afternoon will pass away so quickly with the view of beautiful flowers, trees, architectures, laughter and good chatting. There are a food town right outside the entrance for you if you need to feed yourself a good food J
