TCACCThai Community Arts & Cultural Center : To preserve and promote Thai culture
History of Thai Cultural Day

The Thai Cultural Day originated in 1993 by the Thai Community Arts and Cultural Center.  It is held every year in September, with the first Thai Cultural Day held at Wat Thai of Los Angeles in North Hollywood.  Barnsdall Art Park was later selected as the site for the Thai Cultural Day due to its location close to the Thai community in Hollywood and its historical and artistic significance.

The purpose of the event is to preserve and promote Thai arts and culture through educational and entertainment activities as well as to enhance a multicultural understanding among different ethnic groups.

Our Thai cultural activities typically comprise of the classical and folk dances, the classical music, the children's folk games, the cooking demonstration, etc.  Due to the success of our Thai Cultural Day, we have expanded to include the first Thai Cultural Parade in 1997 (Fifth Annual Thai Cultural Day).

Since our First Annual Thai Cultural Day in 1993, the attendance has reached up to an estimate of 3,000 in the past.  The festival is supported and attended by people from various ethnic groups in the Los Angeles Area.
