Festival held together with the people
The 2016 Ground Forces Festival and Gyeryong Military Cultural Festival was held on the emergency landing strip, Gyeryongdae, in and around Gyeryong-si, Chungcheongnam-do.

Under the slogans, ‘Strong Army, With People!’ and ‘Communicating military culture, Enjoy Gyeryong!’ This festival invited people to participate in fun and novel events. As such, there was a variety of interesting attractions that people could see, feel, and experience in person, and through various programs, they were able to create different experiences that they would likely not normally encounter. In particular, visitors could enjoy various events that inspired a feeling of gratitude toward those who served and have been devoted to Korea, and the people were able to bolster their trust in the Army on the field.

First, the army’s story corner consisted of the army's history hall, military uniform exhibit hall, military barracks, the U.S. Army in Korea promotion hall, recruitment promotion hall, and scientific training hall, which exhibited our army’s past, present, and future at a glance.

At the main stage, which was installed at the emergency landing strip, Gyeryongdae, various attractions were shown twice a day, filled with music, a military band performance, an honor guard demonstration, martial arts, etc. Also, fringe and busking performances allowed people to witness the army's charm at the event site. This is a place of harmony, as it featured a joint civil-military performance that was set in a location where all audience members were able to enjoy the experience together.
