For three days (Friday, August 19th to Sunday, August 21st 2022), POCHA MTL will be celebrating Korean culture and the delicious street food that comes along with it. Taking place at MR-63 along the Corridor Culturel in Griffintown, you can expect a free-to-attend, family-friendly street market, bringing together local Korean restaurants and Korean-themed entertainment. The market will be open from the following times: Friday, August 19th: 17h-22h, Saturday, August 20th: 12h-22h and Sunday, August 21st: 12h-19h
Pocha is a commonplace Korean abbreviation for "Pojang Macha", the street food tents and stalls which line cities like Seoul and Busan, and have now turned into late-night hangouts spots to grab a snack and a drink. Selling comfort snacks like Korean Fried Chicken, K-BBQ, Korean Pancakes and a crowd favorite: Kogos, POCHA MTL hopes to bring Montrealers the authentic Korean experience. This year, we will even bring Chef Cha and Chef Park directly from South Korea, sharing their creations of Korean tacos and Sanchae Bibimbap (temple bibimbap, initially created by Buddhist monks). The festival will also be chock full of entertainment, from Kpop dance cover groups like the infamous East2West, DJs and traditional performances as well. The impressive Random Dance Play sessions are sprinkled throughout the festival, where the audience joins in for the Kpop choreographies they know. Come prepared for dancing, snacks and a good time.
