DALLAS — Korean Market Live is one of the biggest live events in the U.S. It is a three-day event, held every August, that is packed with events from the Korean food scene to entertainment to fashion shows.
The annual event draws a record crowd of about 300,000 people to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, which is home to the city’s largest Korean market.
Korean market Live has grown rapidly since it first started in 2002.
It has become a cultural and entertainment event that attracts tourists, families and people of all ages.
“It’s an event where people come for all kinds of reasons, so it’s a very exciting time for us,” said Mark Stoll, the executive director of the Korean American Chamber of Commerce.
While the market is typically packed, some of the best events have been held on Saturday.
During the first weekend, the event will host events ranging from food, fashion and fashion shows to art exhibits.
It is a tradition that dates back to the late 1970s and 1980s, when the market was at its peak, said Stoll.
The market was the only major city market in the nation that had no parking.
The Korean American Association began the tradition in 1983 and the Korean Community Development Corporation (KCDC) has hosted many of the events.
On Saturday, the city of Dallas will host the first live Korean Market event since the city opened its doors in 1995.
A full schedule of events is available on the Korean community’s website, and there are plans to host more events in coming years.
“We think the Korean market is a big deal, so we’re looking forward to the growth of this community,” said Stol.
On Sunday, there will be a three day celebration of the markets history at the South Korean American Cultural Center in Dallas.
The event is set to feature performances by local artists, live music, a market, a concert and a concert featuring artists from across the country.
Konkuk and the Seoul Asian Market are the only two markets in the United States that are closed on Sundays.
The Korean Market will continue to hold events throughout the year.
