The 10th KORUS Festival went off with wonderful success. Thousands showed up over the three day event and there were lots of new faces visiting all the sold out vendor booths! The Kimchi Taco Truck from New York was a hit, with lines starting before it was open and selling out quickly! The Kimchi tent was always busy and there was lots to taste and learn about kimchi. Volunteers at the kidzone were busy entertaining kids and playing games. It seemed like everyone was constantly shopping for food and trying out different food vendors.
We want to thank all the performers and contestants who performed on stage in front of a live audience and congratulations to all the contest winners! It takes a lot of courage to perform on stage and we thank the individual contest sponsors who organized those contests. DJ Koo, Norazo, Kang InWon, and Lee ChiHyun delighted crowds and stuck around afterwards to shake hands and thank fans for coming.
Lastly, the KORUS committee and the Korean American Association of Washington Metropolitan Area would like to thank each and everyone of you who came out to Bull Run Park. We know the Park was a bit far, but we hope the trip to the gorgeously spacious park was a good relaxing and stress free break from civilization.
Once again, thanks to all who came out and we look forward to next year’s KORUS Festival.
