The 2023 Gangwon-Chuncheon World Taekwondo Cultural Festival (hereinafter referred to as the Cultural Festival) closed after 7 days of competition.

The closing ceremony of the cultural festival was held on the 24th at the World Taekwondo Cultural Festival special stadium in Songam Sports Town, Chuncheon, with Mayor Yook Dong-han, City Council Vice-Chairman Kwon Joo-sang, World Taekwondo (WT) Executive Member Jeong Kuk-hyun, Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province Taekwondo Association President Park Soo-woong, and Chuncheon City Sports Council Chairman Lee Kang-gyun. It was held with 100 people in attendance, including festival officials and game officials. On this day, Lee Sang-min, chairman of the organizing committee, said in his closing remarks, “We have run well together so far,” and added, “I hope to see you again in Chuncheon next July.”

In particular, many visitors came to the World Taekwondo Demonstration Performance Team's breaking demonstration commemorating the hosting of WT Chuncheon on the 21st, making the festival even brighter. The World Taekwondo Demonstration Competition, which provided a wealth of attractions with spectacular aerial kicks, pine board breaking, and group dance, and the World Taekwondo Beach Championships, held for the first time in four years due to COVID-19, received a great response from visitors. In addition, the Octagon Diamond Games competition, which was held for the first time in Korea, and the World Para Taekwondo Open Challenge Competition, which was first established, left a mark of expansion of the base.

An unprecedented four international events were held simultaneously in Chuncheon, and at the WT Executive Committee meeting on the 18th, the opening day, it was decided to build the WT headquarters building along Uiam Lake. In addition, it was decided to hold three events of the World Taekwondo Championships in Chuncheon for three consecutive years starting next year. Chuncheon City is looking forward to revitalizing local competition through large-scale events such as various international competitions and conferences once the WT headquarters, the Olympic Taekwondo negotiating body approved by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), is built.
