Daegu Chimac Festival 2023
August 30 – September 3 KST
The Daegu Chimac Festival 2023 is a grand celebration of two of Korea’s favorite indulgences: chicken and beer. Known locally as “chimac”, a portmanteau of “chicken” and “maekju” (the Korean word for beer), this festival has become an eagerly anticipated summer event. From August 30 to September 3, Duryu Park in Dalseo-gu, Daegu will be transformed into a lively hub of fun, food, and frolic. The festival, hosted by the Korean Chicken and Beer Industry Association and managed by the Daegu Chimec Festival Organizing Committee, is a testament to the country’s love for this popular food pairing.
