The 2013 Chuncheon Dakgalbi & Makguksu Festival, Chuncheon’s top food festival, will be held in front of Chuncheon Station in Chuncheon City, Gangwon-do Province from June 29 to July 7.
This year’s festival is set to have a more diverse arrangement of programs for visitors to enjoy unlike in the past when the festival focused on food mainly. In addition to a makguksu* speed-eating contest and a chance to cook your own makguksu, free samples of dakgalbi* and makguksu will be available for visitors. On top of food programs fireworks, theatrical performances, magic shows and dance performances will take place at this year’s festival.
Admission to the festival is free of charge.
*Dakgalbi: stir-fried chicken ribs and vegetables in a savory and slightly spicy red pepper paste.
*Makguksu: buckwheat noodles in a cool broth.
