A grand showcase of Korea’s popular activities and trends, the K Street Festival is an event for friends and family interested in the diverse culture of Korea.

The two-day free festival has seven staging areas themed to target the different sectors of Korea’s popular presence in the country such as art, beauty products, games, tourism, K-pop, dramas, and food. It carries out the mission to provide the community with the best activities to learn the traits and culture of Korea.
