First held in 2008, the Itaewon Global Village Festival is an annual festival held in the multicultural neighborhood of Itaewon. The festival is a great way to experience and learn about the cultures of other countries without leaving Seoul, and features musical performances, a fashion show, food tents, and a craft beer zone. The highlight of the festival is the 1.4 km Global Village Parade, which combines music and dance from costumed performers, and goes from Hangangjin Station through Itaewon, then onto the main stage at Noksapyeong.
