History of the L.A. County Holiday Celebration
The annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration—presented by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors—provides Angelenos of all ages an opportunity to come together on December 24, and both experience and honor the dynamic, rich cultures of the county. Over the past 60 years, many diverse L.A.-based artists and community groups showcase their talent, artistry and traditions on The Music Center’s iconic Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage. Founded in 1959 by the late Kenneth Hahn (supervisor of the Second District of Los Angeles County from 1952-1992)—who was an advocate for access to the arts—the free three-hour live production featured instrumental music, choral music and dance performances. In 2020, due to L.A. County's "Safer at Work and in the Community" order, the L.A. County Holiday Celebration was pre-recorded and aired on PBS SoCal and KCET and streamed on PBSSocal.org and KCET.org.
