    Eco-Maya Festival, an environmental hemispheric event, connects the indigenous cultural heritage of the Americans, with the urban mecca diversity, Los Angeles California. A one of a kind event, the festival provides a cross-cultural nesting environment where families join in a two-day celebration of cultural, education, entertainment, and fun. The festival brings universal balance with all cultures through the celebration of Mother Earth Day.

    Eco-Maya Festival ties families to daily quality of life educational opportunities as well as promoting conservation of the ecology and biodiversity of our environment. Since the most ancient times, the Mayan people continue to have great respect for the environment and the conservation of their natural resources. The Mayan experience provides the path to a healthy and safe living that brings awareness of the transforming hemispheric heritage in the USA. This transformation represents the largest ethnic group in the nation…Latinos. In California, polls confirm the Latinos have the highest level of support in the state-averaging over 80% for protecting the environment.

    Eco-Maya Festival originated in 1995 and is recognized throughout Southern California. Its uniqueness ties with the recognized Earth Day in the U.S. It is the only Latino environmental festival that reinforces the need to create awareness if environmental networks and resources for urban community sustainability through cultural heritage.

    Eco-Maya Festival, has earned the support of the City of Los Angeles City Council and Cultural Affairs Department, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Department of Water and Power, Los Angeles City College, local media, corporate sponsors and numerous dedicated volunteers. We invite you to join the celebration of Latino environmental stewardship, family, humanity and world peace.
