The 2014 Daegu Chicken and Beer Festival will kick off on the eve of the festival (July 16) with an opening ceremony and continue until July 20, 2014. The festival will be held at Daegu Duryu Park in Dalseo-gu, Daegu.

Chimaek, a term that combines the words “chicken'' and "maekju'' (beer), is a combo beloved my many. This year, aside from featuring a wide variety of beer and chicken dishes, the festival will also have a ton of fun and games such as a beer cocktail-making contest and a chicken sauce-making contest. For the music, the festival has organized concerts featuring DJs, K-pop, and hip-hop performances.

Visitors can enter the festival free of charge; however, the beer sampling requires visitors to provide a proof of age. All chicken and beer will be either free or sold at a lower price.
