In Korean, mukja means “Let’s Eat!” Food is an integral part of Korean culture, but beyond that, it celebrates an evolving identity that we are proud to represent in Portland. Korean dining is often loud, hectic, vibrant and happy—just like the phrase that names it, this festival strives to create a joyful, exciting atmosphere for everybody to enjoy Korean cuisine.
Chefs preparing dishes for the fest include Han Ly Hwang of Kim Jong Grillin, Bo Kwon of Koi Fusion, John Gorham of Toro Bravo, PJ Yang of Bamboo Sushi, Johanna Ware of Smallwares, Rick Gencarelli of Lardo, Peter Cho of Stray Dogs and more!
Festival tickets include food samples and unlimited non-alcoholic beverages (VIP tickets get you early entry and a soju cocktail). Soju cocktails, makgeolli, and beer will be available for purchase.
