Gangwon Potato Festival, Aug. 6-8
Potatoes are a basic staple of Gangwon-do (do=province) cuisine. Even though they’ve only been popular for a few hundred years, Gangwon-do residents love their potatoes.
To prove the point, Gangwon-do is hosting their 14th annual Gangwon Potato Festival this weekend in Pyeongchang-gun (gun means county in Korean) this weekend.
This year’s theme is “The Power of Gangwon Province, the power of the potato.”
For those of us unable to make out this year, I have a couple of Korean potato videos to inspire you to have your own potato festival at home.
