Organized in 1973, the Los Angeles Korean Festival Foundation was founded by leaders of the Korean immigrant community of the greater LA area. These leaders saw the importance of preserving their ethnic identity and organized this Festival. The Los Angeles Korean Festival is one of the largest ethnic celebrations in the nation.
The mission of this festival was summed up on Eventbrite:
"The mission of the Los Angeles Korean Festival is not only to provide an opportunity for the young Korean-American second generation to appreciate their culture and heritage, but also to serve as an instrument for which people from all ethnic groups can learn and experience Korean culture."
