Enjoy the food, beauty and arts of this unique culture
People flock to Melbourne's multicultural festivals. They come for the great food, free entertainment as well as for cultural enlightenment. It is amazing what you can learn about different cultures by attending these events.
The Korean Festival is being held in Federation Square on May 23rd 2015. This fabulous cultural event is organised by the Consulate-General of the Republic of Korea in Melbourne and the Korean Community in Victoria.
These sauces are added to many Korean dishes which you will be able to try on the day.
There will also be a hanbok fashion parade. Hanbok is the traditional outfit of the Korean people and these days is usually only worn for special days (such as this festival) or to funerals and religious services. It is considered so special that children wear hanbok on their first birthday and adults wear it for their wedding ceremony and on their 60th birthday.
There will be a host of musical events from traditional music to current pop.
