This study was to suggest a reinvigoration plan for local festivals of Daejeon metropolitan city. In order to do this, current local festivals of Daejeon metropolitan city were critically scrutinized. Then, a reinvigoration plan was suggested from the community based festival perspective. Specifically, five basic directions of community based local festivals were proposed. Also, development of a community based local festival manual and its spread to the probationers were suggested as the internal reinvigoration plan. The manual included five steps of local festival planning and management: decision making, basic planning, specific designing, performing, and evaluation stage. Furthermore, from the perspective of making a better village for living, five dimensions of reinvigoration plan for outside were also proposed. In sum, reinvigoration of community-based festivals could be considered not only as a means of creating community culture in a small aspect but also a key means of making a village live in a large aspect.
