2017 Korean Festival of Dallas

Carrollton H-Mart, rear parking lot

Folks, the second annual (outdoor) Korean Festival of Dallas is just around the corner. 2017 Korean Festival of Dallas is on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 @ Carrollton H-Mart, rear parking lot.

 

I know we've seen numerous Korean festivals around North Texas lately. But this is “THE” Korean Festival that you all experienced last year. This year's festival is expected to be even bigger, better, and more fun than last year's event. You will see some of the most familiar performances, as well as new performances you’ve never seen anywhere in Dallas.

 

Although the preparation committee hasn't announced the official schedule of events, following is an unofficial one, courtesy of Korean Society of Dallas. While some of it may be subject to change, it will give you some idea of how the Korean Festival will unfold.

 

 

11:10AM
Opening concert - Country Music(yes, American country music performance at a Korean festival)

 

11:35AM
At the main stage, Traditional Drum Dance by Ji-Ae Park, Master Choral Choir, Gwang-Gae-Toe Samulnori.
