2017 Korea Christmas Fair held at KINTEX

The 2018 Korea Christmas Fair & Gift Wonderland Season V will be held at Exhibition Hall 1 of KINTEX from December 7 to 16 this year.

The annual fair is Asia’s largest open market exhibition that marks its fifth anniversary this year. The organizer of the fair, KINREX, added "Gift Wonderland" to its title this year in order to hold events like giving warm gifts to citizens.

This year's fair will consist of two parts. The first part will run from December 7 to 9 and the second part from December 14 to 16. The event will be held in a warm indoor space so families and lovers will be able to enjoy Christmas events and exhibitions without shivering in cold weather.

The fair will feature a plethora of items, including Christmas goods (trees, party supplies, decorations, lighting devices, etc.), Christmas gifts (cosmetics, jewelry, aromatic products, clothes and miscellaneous goods), Christmas foods (cakes, cookies, wines, desserts, cheeses, turkey, etc.), interior and living props and home decors (furniture, interior accessories, tableware, bowls, kitchen utensils, bedding, etc.), character goods (products for kidults, toys, action figures, etc.) and Christmas culture (local governments, travel packages, festivals, etc.).

The most notable point is that the K-Baby and Kids Fair (KINTEX Hall 5) will be held simultaneously with the Christmas Fair (KINTEX Halls 3 and 4), so visitors can enjoy both events. The Seoul Dessert Fair will be also held, whetting people’s interest in famous artists’ works to be shown for the Christmas season.

In addition to the main events, there will be Christmas carol performances, sessions on making Christmas trees, and a food truck festival. Christmas tree villages with large Christmas trees will be built inside and outside the exhibition hall. A Santa Claus show will feature Santa Claus and popular entertainers.

"The Christmas Fair is the largest Christmas event in Korea and marks its fifth anniversary this year," a KINTEX official said. “Various events and an exhibition of Christmas items will give a lot of fun to families, including foreign families living in Korea, and friends and lovers.”

In the meantime, those who register online (http://www.christmasfair.co.kr/english/) in advance will be able to enjoy free admission to the Christmas Fair.
