Korean Association Celebrating 50th Anniversary in Montgomery County With Exciting Events on April 30

By

Korean American Association of Greater Philadelphia (KAAGP) is excited to celebrate their 50th anniversary and the grand opening of the 13th Office of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Philadelphia.

On April 30, 2022, KAAGP is hosting “Korea in Philly.” 

There’s a full day celebration at The Montgomery County Community College Health Sciences Building in Blue Bell.

The program will consist of a 5k walk/run, Korean food to be sampled, Tae Kwon Do demonstrations, a fashion show of traditional Korean attire, an exhibition of a traditional Korean wedding ceremony as well as many other exhibitions.

Several local guests and leaders who serve in the political, business, and non-profit sectors will be in attendance as well as over 40 Korean American Associations. A few committed associations are the Korean School Association, the Korean Beauty Supply Association, the Korean Athletic Association, the Korean Dry Cleaners Association and much more.

This event will showcase their proud heritage and re-introduce the Korean American community for the general public. In 1970, the first-generation Korean immigrants led and established the KAAGP.

Since then, they have been a part of numerous community events with the census efforts throughout the region in 2020 and mobilizing in response to the COVID19 pandemic.

KAAGP helped make and distribute 46,000 masks and assisted businesses in the wake of the riots that took place. They are excited to continue building the relationships that help contribute to Greater Philadelphia.
