The 2013 Daegu Chicken and Beer Festival will be held at the area around Daegu Duryu Park, in Dalseo-gu, Daegu from July 18 to 21.

Chimaek is a portmanteau of chicken (치킨; chikin) and beer (맥주; maekju). Chimaek is a beloved snack of Koreans, especially during the long and hot summer evenings, and, accordingly, Daegu will be hosting a chimaek festival this month. In its inaugural year, this unique festival is already drawing a lot of attention from local and international tourists. Approximately 50 chicken, beer, and drink stands will participate in this festival and provide free sampling booths for visitors. Alongside the chicken and beer, parades, DJ concerts, Korean traditional dance performances, a photo zone, face painting and many other events will be offered.

Although every visitor is allowed to enter the festival, free beer sampling coupons will only be given to those who bring appropriate identification and are legally old enough to imbibe.

Admission to this festival is free of charge.
