If you’ve danced to K-pop, cried over K-dramas, love Korean food or are just curious to learn more about Korean culture, you’ll be happy to know that Korea Festival is returning to Fed Square. Back in Melbourne for the first time since 2019, this incredible event is the perfect way for you to ride the Hallyu wave and develop an interest in Korea. The festival is free to attend, and will take place on Saturday May 13.
This cultural event has introduced Korea to Melbourne since 2014. This year, you can expect heaps of bustling booths showcasing delicious Korean food, as well as traditional clothing to try on and traditional crafts to check out.
Celebrate Korean culture with a variety of performances, including traditional music, Taekwondo demonstrations, a K-pop dance and singing competition, and much more.
There will also be plenty of activities to keep you occupied, including some of the games from the Netflix phenomenon, Squid Game. Challenge one of the red-suited staff members to a traditional game of Ttakji (딱지), test your strength in tug of war (줄다리기) or race to the finish line without getting caught during the Red Light, Green Light (무궁화 꽃이 피던 날) game.
The festival will kick off at 11am, and run until 8pm. More details will be released closer to the festival date. For the latest information, click here.
