New York’s 2022 Korean Festival will return to 17th St. between Broadway & Park Avenue this Sunday, October 23rd. Put on by the Korean American Association of Greater New York (KAAGNY), the event has been celebrating Korean culture in NYC for 43 years.
Last year, the annual tradition relocated from K-Town to Union Square, where it will be held for a second year this 2022 season.
The street festival will feature delicious food vendors, entertaining performances & activities including K-pop and Ssireum (Korean wrestling), and the chance to win a free trip to Korea, courtesy of Korean Air. 2018 Miss Korea, Soo Min Kim, will be the event’s emcee.
KAAGNY is a non-profit organization connecting Korean Americans and advocating for the best interest of diasporic Koreans in NYC. Additionally, the KAAGNY serves as a link to 500 other Korean American organizations that assist in providing education, community outreach, vocational help and more to Korean Americans of all ages.
They even offer Korean classes for those interested in learning, with courses during all four seasons. See more about their online language program here.

The festival is free and open to everyone. You can RSVP here.
