The first records of a plan for the Croatian Cultural Center of Greater Los Angeles can be traced back to January-February 1997. In March 1997 former City Councilman Rudy Svorinich and the former Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) purchased the property located at 643 South Pacific Avenue (the current location of the Center). Since its Grand Opening on Sunday, May 27, 2001 the Center has presented and sponsored programs and activities that celebrate the rich culture and traditions of Croatia; and programs and activities that highlight and celebrate the Croatian diaspora throughout the world. Current programs and activities include participation in the monthly First Thursday Art Walk in San Pedro; Zumba Classes; Croatian Language Classes; Readers Theatre Repertory; Twilight Readers; Philippine Cultural Month Celebration, Latino Heritage Month Celebration; exhibitions and festivals.
