    EcoMaya Festivals was founded in 1995, with its first Mother Earth Day celebration at The Great Photography Center in Los Angeles. In its second year it moved its celebration to the beautiful Barnsdall Art Park in Hollywood, where it remained for four years. The EcoMaya Festival returned to Barnsdall Park in 2004.

    Recognizing that the crowds and performances were becoming larger year after year, the EcoMaya Festivals decided it was time to seek a larger place. The Mother Earth Day Celebration had a new home at the Los Angeles City College, where it remain until the staff finds it necessary to seek an even more larger place. Furthermore, the Los Angeles City College is strategically located in the area of Los Angeles where 75% of the festivalís attendees reside. Los Angeles City College was one of our venues for many years, too.

    In 2005, the host of the EcoMaya Festival was ECO Village at Bimini Place, with a colorful program supported for sponsors and volunteers.

    The organizing committee of ECOMaya Festival 2006 is looking forward to celebrate the two days 2006 event on grounds of The Cornfield. We were inspired by the powerful conceptual art work of Not a Cornfield created by artist Lauren Bon to present a corn harvest in front of LA downtown skyline.

    This is an opportunity to highlight the entire LA River development and the California preservation of urban space for human development.

    It has been estimated that the Los Angeles Area is home to approximately over two million Maya people from the areas of Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Guatemela, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

    The EcoMaya Festivals have been realized because of the help and support of the Los Angeles City Councils, the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, the Los Angeles State Parks and other sponsors and volunteers who join us in the celebration each year.
