We have a new post for the 2010 Korean Heritage Festival Here

This Saturday the largest and most celebrated event for the local Korean community takes place in Coquitlam. The Korean Heritage Day Festival showcases Korean heritage through cultural performances, community gathering, the finals of Korean Fest Idol, and some awesome food.

Here’s 2 of the 5 w’s

The festival is presented as part of the Coquitlam 2009 – Cultural Capital of Canada program. This is the 8th annual festival and in 2003 the Province of BC declared the official Korea Day to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Korean-Canadian diplomatic relations.

While the main festival day is on Saturday, there is also an art exhibition at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Korean Art: Past, Present, and Future will run until September 5th. The exhibition features 5 Korean artists who created pieces influenced by Korean culture.

Two venues, lots to see and do, bring the kids!
