The Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) is presenting special events across Los Angeles in honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. This celebration honors the people rooted in the diverse cultures of the Pacific Rim and the vast Asian continent. The history, culture, and traditions of this region enrich our city and the many Angelenos who trace their origins from East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the Pacific Islands.
Read on for highlights of the numerous festivals, performances, film screenings, and cultural activities taking place throughout the city. For the full calendar of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month events, download the 2019 program.
