The Lotus flower is significant to the Asian cultures as a symbol of rebirth, purity, and life. The event is held in July when the Lotus plant blooms. Echo Park Lake was selected as the site for the event due to its central location of local Asian and Pacific Islander communities and because it hosts the largest Lotus bed in the United States. The Festival includes food, live music, ethnic dances, and a variety of performers representing the people and culture of Asian and the Pacific Islands. Also featured at the Festival are a Children’s Area, Japanese Tea House and Ceremony, Silent Auction, Gift Bazaar and a unique Asian Artisan area. This year we are hosting the People’s Republic of China in the opening ceremony on Saturday, July 14th beginning at 12:00 noon.

12:00 noon – 9:00 p.m.

Sponsor: Los Angeles Lotus Festival Inc.
