The Los Angeles Culture Festival™ is a charitable non-profit organization focused on promoting awareness and educating Southern California about the rich Caribbean Culture and other cultures of the world. LACF engages volunteers in its activities during its Annual Los Angeles Culture Festival.
On Saturday, June 25th 2016, the Los Angeles Culture Festival will miraculously transform Hollywood Blvd. into a grand carnival & street extravaganza. This event is a celebration of culture and tradition where parade-goers and masqueraders will be dressed in vibrant, breathtaking costumes dancing to pulsating rhythms of Calypso, Soca, Samba, Reggae, Zouk, Latin, Punta, Meringue, Mariachi, Reggaeton, Blues,Jazz, Steel Pan, Indian, Asian, African, Middle Eastern and other worldly music.
The parade will begin on Hollywood Blvd. & Vermont Ave. and end east of Highland Ave. between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Following the parade, the celebration will continue into our Carnival Culture Village. The Carnival Culture Village is located on 6800 Hollywood Blvd. and will feature food, arts & crafts, and live entertainment from around the world. We anticipate that this cultural fusion will attract a significant amount of local attendees and tourists from our diverse multi-cultural society. We are excited and look forward to our 5th Annual Los Angeles Culture Festival.™
