  • The annual Thai New Year’s Day Songkran Festival held on the first Sunday of April, brings together over 100,000 Thais and visitors for a day of Thai culture, food, and entertainment. A Thai Town 5K run/walk fund-raiser kicks off this annual event.
  • Every September, the Thai Community Arts and Cultural Center organizes a Thai Cultural Day in Barnsdall Art Park, located in East Hollywood. Thai Cultural Day originated in 1993 to preserve and promote Thai culture. This annual event held in early September includes classic Thai arts and crafts, such as vegetable and fruit carving, folk music and dancing. The annual Thai Health Fair, a parade and a live reenactment of the war between Burma and Thailand are held during Thai Culture Day. Interactive activities for children involve making traditional masks and headdresses and learning traditional dances.
