With so many different cultures in los angeles, it means that locals and visitors can enjoy a wide range of foods, events, and experiences. The richness of LA is in part to all the cultures that call this city home. Check out some of these cultural events in downtown Los Angeles this summer.
What started out as an Asian inspired night market that began 6 years ago is now one of the largest food events in the area. While perhaps the market’s biggest draw is the impressive food vendors, there is also a number of vendors featuring merchandise, music, games, arts and crafts and entertainment attractions. Be sure to come hungry and with your phone charged because these food items are all instagram worthy. If you’re interested though, hurry out as the last night market of the summer takes place on September 2nd.
