Hosted on Daecheon Beach the Boryeong Mud Festival takes place every summer and includes tons of events such as mud wrestling, mud king contest, and mud sliding.

It’s the perfect event to get down and dirty while beating the summer heat. This festival not only attracts locals from all over the country but also international visitors looking to have a good time. The festival holds many activities like mud wrestling, mud sliding, a marine mud training course, and swimming in a big mud bath. The events are also perfect for kids, as there is a Mud Kid’s Land for children to have fun in the mud. 

The highlight of the festival is likely the photo competition, which is a high profile event that invites tons of competition every year. Here, alongside other events, you’ll have the chance to join in on an event called “adventurous silt extreme training,” which is a marine-type extreme training course based silt that features exercises, games, cavalry battles, and even a human pyramid.

The mud itself is very good for your skin and health, so save money on a facemask and just join in on the fun. At night, you can relax or experience some games and watch fireworks with friends at the gorgeous night beach.
