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 returns in 2004; after several years at the Los
Angeles City College campus.
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, and the many sponsors
and volunteers who join us in the celebration each year.
The EcoMaya Festivals have also been made possible by the
support and perseverance of the Festival's founder, Julio
