In Korea, around the Autumn equinox every year, the whole nation takes a three day holiday to return to their hometowns and reunite with family. The Nam Center invites you to join our family in celebrating the harvest moon this year. Filled with programming for all ages, guests can watch traditional and contemporary Korean music and dance performances by U-M students and sample some of the media culture that is making such waves all over Asia and globally. As with any thanksgiving celebration, traditional cuisine takes top-billing and guests from the young to not-so-young can try Songpyeon (traditional Chuseok rice cakes) and sample dishes that are served on this occasion. Those with a competitive streak can challenge others in a variety of games such as Korean Jacks, Top Spinning, Tuho (Arrow tossing) and Yutnori (a traditional Korean dice game). Children will be given the opportunity to a variety of cultural crafts, in a special Korea for Kids area! So bring your friends and family and enjoy the festivities as you are immersed in Korean hospitality and culture. Read more about last year's party!
