Korean Festival (yes, food involved) 6/10 Southfield [DTW]

VTB | Jun 3, 2012 05:49 PM

The Korean Cultural Center at 24666 Northwestern Hwy in Southfield will hold its “Dano Festival,” which in Korea traditionally marks the completion of Spring planting season. Obviously, some of the foods involved will be traditional (particularly given that this event isn’t much advertised among non-Koreans; and yes, I’ve been assured that non-Koreans are enthusiastically welcomed). The food offered will be free, so it is hard to imagine it could be too plentiful and wonderful, but Korean’s are a pretty prideful bunch, so you never know. I'll probably make an in-kind donation upon conclusion of my visit.

There also will be some dancing performances and other rituals… as well---inevitably---as bad Asian pop music, I’m guessing. I’ve not been to this location, but I think it is near Evergreen and Ten Mile Road. Start time is 1pm (Sun 10-June), though the gentleman answering the phone (248-945-9044) hinted that I may want to arrive a half hour early if I was a foodie. Hey, if any of you have been to past Dano Festivals in town, or elsewhere, please share your experience. Thanks!
