“Hallyu, Power of Diversity

I welcome you to the 2017 Los Angeles Korean Festival!

The Los Angeles Korean Festival, which celebrates its 44 th anniversary this year, is a significant event that boasts years of tradition and is considered one of the largest gatherings among 750 million Koreans overseas from 170 different countries.

Every year, we successfully endeavor in further challenging to develop the festival and enhance the festival experience. Moreover, we promise that in 2017 our foundation will create a new chapter in history as a representative non-profit organization dedicated to serving the Korean community.

The 44 th Los Angeles Korean Festival taking place from Thursday, October 12th to Sunday, October 15th will be celebrating the theme of “Hallyu, Power of Diversity”, thus it will consist of unique programs and various performances that hope to spread awareness of Korean beauty and traditional culture throughout the city of Los Angeles which is composed of numerous diverse ethnicities, thereby ultimately harmonizing the energy of all people.

The Los Angeles Korean Festival continues to this day through the endless patronage and generous support of all participating businesses, groups, and festival attendees. We are always deeply thankful and ask for your participation and interest in the 44 th Los Angeles Korean Festival taking place this year. 

Los Angeles Korean Festival Foundation President, Jimmy Lee
