On any given weekend, Brisbanites have plenty of opportunities to pretend that they're on holidays. No, we're not talking about taking a staycation, as fun as that is. Instead, we're encouraging you to embrace the city's busy array of cultural festivals.
Come August 12 from 10am to 4pm, it's the Korean community's turn to celebrate the cuisine, culture and everything else that makes their nation great. For one day only, the Korean Cultural Festival will take over King George Square. Expect to fill your stomach at the many food stalls, and then digest your tasty treats while watching martial arts displays.
Of course, the list of events and activities only continues, with the whole affair offering attendees a showcase of traditional and contemporary elements such as meals, music and much, much more. In fact, the range of entertainment sums up the combination of old and new perfectly. After you've listened to pan-sori, or Korean singing, you can groove along to some K-pop.
