Ansung Grape Festival

Korea's 'Grape Festival,' celebrating the introduction of grapes to Korea 100 years ago, will be held in Ansung, Kyonggi-do.
In 1901, the Reverend Antonio Comber planted young grape plants brought from his home, in the Ansung area.
The festival committee, which is composed of professors, artists, and local residents, will handle most of the festival's preparations.
A large number of visitors is expected for the event, which features the Ansung Grape Museum, the Farming Tool Exhibition, and the Grape Industry Fair.
