The 2015 Irvine Korean Cultural Festival will be held at 1 Civic Center Plaza Saturday at 10 a.m.

The sixth annual event was planned to give second-generation Korean Americans and non-Koreans a cultural experience.

Free bibimbap, a kimchi cooking demonstration, traditional Korean games, drawing, displayed works from noted Korean artists, taekwondo demonstrations, traditional dance performances and instruction on making hanji dolls will be among the festival’s offerings.

A K-pop cover dance contest, followed by a live concert by “Make It Pop” star Megan Lee, is also slated to take place. Acapella groups Forty4B and Coco Avenue will also perform.

Entrance is free of charge. All proceeds from the event go toward funding the building of a Korean cultural center.
