The Korean Cultural Festival 2017 is being held on Saturday, 12th August from 10am to 4pm in King George Square, Brisbane. Entry is FREE so it’s a terrific way to enjoy your Saturday with family and friends. The city centre is bustling with activity and music on weekends, a perfect place to hang out if that is the kind of thing you want to do. Please share your comments if you find this post to be useful.
I’ve added some videos and photos from last year’s festival… see if this excites you!
Korean Food Stalls
We attended the event last year and thoroughly enjoyed the different facets of Korean culture. My kids, 6 year old Eve and 3 year old Mikael, had a terrific time getting those lovely faces painted. I had a ball shopping authentic Korean sauces and an Aloe Honey Tea that could be used on toast but is even more amazing when mixed with water to make a cooling drink to beat the Brisbane heat. There is something for everyone at the festival. Foodies would particularly love it because of the variety of food on offer at the stalls and there is plenty to shop for, from artefacts to food preparatory items.
A Dance Practice… the final performance was better 😉
This year’s festival will feature
- Mouth watering Korean food
- Live music
- Performances including Samul-Nori, the Korean traditional performance
- K-pop dances
- Taekwondo, the Korean martial arts, an absolute treat to watch
- Children’s activities
Have added pictures of the event from the 2016 Korean Cultural Festival to help you decide better for yourself whether it is worth going to. Would love to hear insights from readers about this year’s festival.
