  • Our Purpose

    We're here to service our great community here in Chicago.

    Community Events

    The Chicago Korean Festival

    Every year we throw a Korean festival in Chicago. It's an important event for us, as it's our chance to share our culture with others, and also an opportunity to connect young people with their roots. Additional events will be posted as they're planned. 

    Sharing and Growing Together

    Business Initiatives

    We work directly with the state to provide assistance to businesses. Among our services are strategic support and specialized consultations. We work to connect business with each other in order to build a stronger community. 

    Strengthening Ties to Korea

    Learning from Korea's Dynamism

    We work with the Korean Chamber of Commerce in Seoul, Daegu and Busan to support any of their global events. Our goal is to bridge the gap between Korea and Chicago so that we may share and grow together. 

    Strengthening Ties to Chicago

    Working with the Windy City

    We work within the 39th district of Chicago in order to plan state-recognized events for the Chicago Korean community. We also joined the Niles and Des Plaines Chambers of Commerce.
