About this Event

Chuseok means "the great middle (of autumn)", and is a major harvest festival in Korea. Traditionally, a three-day holiday, Chuseok is a celebration of good harvest where families visit ancestral hometowns, enjoy song, dance, folk games, and share a feast of traditional foods. The Gateway Korea foundation invites families and friends to learn and experience the culture of Korea at these two events on Sept. 28-29th.

The Chuseok Festival, Sept. 28th: Participate in Korean calligraphy demonstrations, as well as learn the Korean alphabet, and make Korean kites and wood block stamps. Sample delicious foods, and enjoy modern and traditional dance, Korean Samul-Nori drum and martial arts performances. Visitors can enjoy K-pop dance performances, and try on traditional dress called Hanboks. Admission is free.

Passport to Korea, Sept. 29th: Presented in collaboration with the St. Louis Art Museum, as part of the Family Sundays program, this event offers a chance to make traditional Korean arts and crafts, learn about the Korean alphabet, play games and more. Hear Korean stories in the storytelling corner. Free tours of the museum's Korean art collection will also be offered. Admission is free.
