It’s March again in Korea and that means that it’s once again time for the St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Seoul. This years St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Seoul will be held in the D-Cube Plaza (last year’s festival was held in Insadong) which is located beside Sindorim station. Unlike previous years, there will be no parade this year. We are very lucky this year as St. Patrick’s Day Festival falls on a Saturday. There will be plenty of events and activities that will take place at D-Cube Plaza such as Irish, Korean, International music and Irish dancing on stage with samples of Irish food, face painting, balloons and more fun activities off stage. The St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Seoul begins at 12:30 pm and finishes up at around 18:00 pm on Saturday March 17th. After the festival is over everyone will be heading off to Rocky Mountain Tavern in Itaewon to continue on St. Patrick’s Day will plenty of drink until the early hours of the morning.
