A celebration of history, community & environment in the cradle of Los Angeles.

The site, formerly know as ‘The Cornfield’ was once slated for over 1 million feet of industrial development. However, in what is considered one of the great environmental victories of the late 20th century, a diverse coalition of community activists known as the Chinatown Yard Alliance defeated the development and secured the land for open space.
Now after five years of park planning, California State Parks will open an Interim Public U se Park at the newly classified “Los Angeles State Historic Park” in downtown Los Angeles.
The Grand Opening celebration will include a full-day of live music, entertainment, refreshments, interpretative walks, and fun. Live musical acts include QUETZAL, MARIACHI DIVAS, Taiko Drummers, Afro-Cuban Drummers as well as the East Wind Lion Dancers, Shaolin Monks, children’s activities and more…
Bring a blanket and a friend and enjoy the new downtown park against the scenic LA skyline. FREE ADMISSION.

When: Saturday, September 23rd, 9:30am-5pm

Where: Los Angeles State Historic Park (formerly The Cornfield)
