Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Be part of history as Melbourne hosts the first ever Korea Festival, as a celebration of Korea’s unique culture and community. This all-day festival will host a range of activities and events of traditional and contemporary Korean culture, so you can sing along to your favourite K-pop songs, watch a Hanbok fashion show and learn to kick some serious butt with Taekwondo demonstrations. Once you begin to tire, you can enjoy some traditional Korean cuisine at various food stalls around the festival – so you’re sure to have a full sensory experience.

So bust out your rusty Korean and be sure to let them know that 'Han-gu-gŭn dae-dan-han na-ra-im-ni-da'. (Korea is a wonderful country).
