The Beautiful History and Culture of Korea

Through the power of Hallyu, people of all backgrounds have come to love Korean culture, pop, and entertainment. This is especially true for Los Angelenos. Every year, the Los Angeles Korean Festival is one of the most prominent opportunities to enjoy performances and festivities that are rooted in Korea. From martial arts to traditional dance to Korean pop, the performance aspect of the festival is what draws a large and diverse crowd, both in age and ethnicity. Every year, the Los Angeles Korean Festival works hard to bring in popular "K-Pop" entertainers for a memorable festival experience. 


Sponsored by The Korea Times (Los Angeles), the annual Korean Parade on Olympic Boulevard has become one of the best features that the festival offers. Ornate floats from corporate sponsors, performers, and Koreatown's notable figures, parade down the street as crowds of all ages gather.
