Happenings on the Han River: Have a Picnic during the Jamsugyo Bridge Festival - The Daebak Company

Hanging out on the banks of the Han River in Seoul has become a pastime for residents and visitors. It’s a great place to relax and have fun with friends. 

Now there’s a new experience to enjoy along the Han River. Every Sunday from August 28 to October 30th, the Jamsugyo Bridge will be turned into a pedestrian bridge for the Jamsugyo Bridge Festival.

About the Jamsugyo Bridge Festival

The Jamsugyo Bridge sits below the Banpodaegyo Bridge. Jamsugyo means “submersible”. This bridge was specifically designed to be a low-lying bridge that can be lowered into the Han River to help slow flooding. 

People who walk across the bridge during the festival can enjoy the food stalls and flea markets. They will even have outdoor movie theaters and live shows to watch. 

One of the highlights of visiting the Jamsugyo Bridge is finding a spot to have a picnic. Let The Daebak Company get you prepared for your weekend hangout at the Jamsugyo Bridge.
