Chuseok is one of the year’s most important traditional Korean holidays. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month. Chuseok is often referred to as Korean Thanksgiving Day. It’s a celebration of the harvest and thanksgiving for the bounty of the earth.

In addition to enjoying the awesome playgrounds and wooden walking trails at War Memorial Park, we'll be celebrating with traditional Korean and American food and drinks, music, arts and crafts. Join us for the day or stop by for tea and songpyeon (a special type of sweet rice cakes). We'll be there, rain or shine. And if it is cold enough, we'll make good use of the fireplace!
