This year, the Itaewon Global Village Festival will be held from October 11~12, 2014 around the streets of Itaewon.

Located near the city center, Itaewon is Seoul's, or Korea's for that matter, most exotic neighborhood where diverse cultures and nationalities coexist. Originally formed as an area for US military personnel because of the close proximity to the Yongsan US Military Base, Itaewon is now an entertainment mecca for both foriegn and local residents with its myraid of nightlife options and restaurants. Itaewon is THE place to enjoy a diversity of cultures, shopping, food and entertainment.  One of the major draws of Itaewon is the diverse cuisine of foods from all over the world that are not widely available in the rest of Korea.  Unique flavors, exotic interiors and diverse cultures truely make Itaewon the Global Villiage of Seoul.  

Experience Itaewon on steroids at full capacity during the Itaewon Global Festival, the largest multicultural event in Korea. Enjoy foods and exhibitions from around the world, spectacular street parades, K-POP concerts, and a whole lot of other cultural events. A must-do is the World Food Court, where embassies provide sponsorship to offer a variety of international foods that are normally hard to find in Korea.
