한가위 | The Korean Harvest Festival
Since 2001, the Korean Harvest Festival has been attracting large crowds to experience Korean culture. KHF is officially the biggest Korean festival in Canada as well as the largest and most anticipated gathering in North York. In 2017 an estimated 35,000 people attended and turnout is expected to grow as the Hallyu phenomenon continues.
Guests of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy over twenty live performances such as traditional sport of Tae Kwon Do, traditional dance and drumming, K-pop dance concert, interactive audience games, and the popular masked singer competition. There are also visits by prominent members of the Korean-Canadian community, politicians, celebrities and other VIPs during our opening ceremony. Our event is free to the public!
The Korean Harvest Festival aims to spread the culture of thanksgiving by providing a variety of cultural events and programs on behalf of the Korean Canadian community. The Korean Canadian Business Association (KCBA) prides itself in working very hard to make this a successful event and hopes to cultivate the Korean Community in Toronto.
