2012 Chuseok Holiday Events in Daegu


Chuseok, Korean Thanksgiving Day, is just around the corner. Chuseok is a major harvest festival that falls on August 15th by the lunar calendar and we have a three-day holiday. A variety of folk games are played on Chuseok to celebrate the coming of Autumn and rich harvest all around Korea.

For those who have no special plan for the holiday yet, I brought the information of various events where you can play folk games and experience holiday culture. Even though you have a plan already, it would be worth taking the time to visit. It will be a great opportunity for you to experience Korean traditional holiday culture.
