L.A. County Holiday Celebration 2017
As Los Angeles’ largest multicultural holiday celebration, the 58th annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration, presented by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, provides Angelenos of all ages an opportunity to come together on December 24 to experience and honor the dynamic, rich cultures of the County. During the free event, many diverse L.A.-based artists and community groups showcase their talent, artistry and traditions on The Music Center’s iconic Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage. Founded in 1959 by the late Kenneth Hahn, supervisor of the Second District of Los Angeles County for 40 years (from 1952-1992) – who was an advocate for access to the arts – the free three-hour live production features instrumental music, choral music and dance performances. The show is broadcast live in Southern California on PBS SoCal (KOCE), live streamed on pbssocal.org and presented live at The Music Center.
