KEARNEY – The annual Korean Festival at the University of Nebraska at Kearney will give the campus and community a chance to experience another culture.

The Korean Student Association at Kearney will host the fourth annual festival on Thursday (Nov. 20) in the Ponderosa Room of the Nebraskan Student Union. Doors open at 7 p.m. and it is free and open to the public.

“Students and the community in the middle of Nebraska don’t always have the opportunity to taste other country’s culture,” said Kyung Jhi, a criminal justice professor and faculty advisor for the Korean Student Association at Kearney. “This is a good chance to see how other people abroad are living.”

A Korean-style meal will be served at the start of the event. Guests will be able to participate in traditional Korean games and activities, and test their knowledge about Korea with a quiz.

UNK students will perform taekwondo, traditional Korean dancing and a short play featuring Korean folklore.

The festival is sponsored by the University Programming and Facility Fee?.

  1. Such a great festival to introduce culture to the surrounding environment and the outside world.
    Strongly supports events like this, it would be nice if there were cultural exchanges between universities in other countries.
