Participants in K-Fest Sydney 2015 will also have the chance to win a trip to Korea for two including return economy airfares and four night’s accommodation, simply by taking a photo that ‘best captures the essence of K-Fest Sydney 2015’. Full details of the competition will be made available just prior to the event on the K-Fest Sydney 2015 webpage.
The two-day free festival is held at Palm Grove, Darling Harbour on the 12 and 13 September from 10am to 5pm. The festival will highlight all things Korean: K-Food, K-Pop, K-Spirit, K-Style and K-Place. K-Fest is organised by Korea Tourism Organization in association with JK Entertainment and is expected to draw large crowds over the two day event.
The Director of the Sydney office Mr. Sang-weon Je welcomes the opportunity to host the event in Sydney with the support of the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority: “K-Fest Sydney 2015 will be a great chance for Sydneysiders and visitors to the city to join a free and fun two day event where they can learn more about Korea, it’s culture and traditions and see why Korea has become such a popular destination for Australian travellers. Australians have fallen in love with Korean food and many young people are obsessed with K-Pop and K-Style, so it’s a wonderful chance for us to bring a taste of Korean tourism and culture to Darling Harbour.”
Visitors to the event will be able to enjoy an exciting mix of traditional and modern dance and music; hands-on activities like temple lantern making; and a Korean costume dress-up and photo opportunity in front of a royal palace. The highly popular performers of ‘The Original Drawing Show’ will be the major attraction of the event, showcasing their live drawing sessions on the main stage alongside K-Pop performances from girl group Sweety J and JK M Academy Dance Studio.
There will be opportunities to learn more about Korean food with MasterChef 2012 contestant Amina Elshafei giving a kimchi-making demonstration on both days. A diverse array of ethnic fare will be available including Korean street food from Sydney’s popular POKLOL and swirling potato sticks from Dippin Dots ice cream.
