Bloomfield to host sixth Korean Culture Festival Sept. 30

BLOOMFIELD, N.J. – For the sixth consecutive year, Bloomfield College will give its student body and the public at large a window into one of the most fascinating cultures in the world.

The institution’s Office of International and Professional Studies will once again host its annual Korean Culture Festival on Sept. 30, with the day’s events produced by members of Bloomfield’s Global Internship and Math and Science Teachers programs.

“This festival will be a good showcase for college students and the Bloomfield community to see an international and educational experience,” vice president of global affairs and professional studies Dr. Peter Jeong said of the event. “It allows our international students to show their culture and the customs they take great pride in, and show everyone what life is like in the country they love.”

Open to the public and free to attend, the festivities will treat patrons to Korean cultural staples, including traditional culinary dishes, signature games, and a presentation of the nation’s customary wedding ceremony. All food and events will be prepared and presented by students within the Bloomfield College programs, making it an event that allows a large section of the institution’s student body to showcase its heritage.

“This is one of the most entertaining events we do each year, because our students take such pride in making it an enjoyable experience for anyone that decides to attend,” associate director of global programs Joon Park said. “We encourage the local community to come to campus and take part in this special day.”

The Festival will be held on the Bloomfield College campus, directly across the street from 225 Liberty Street in the “Quad” area of the grounds. The event will run from Noon to 2 p.m.
