Cambodia Town Culture Festival is a lively celebration of Long Beach’s Cambodian community, the largest concentration of Cambodians outside Southeast Asia, showcasing the community’s cultural heritage and thriving community businesses and non-profit organizations.  The annual festival will have interactive demonstrations and performances of a variety of art forms from Cambodia’s rich and ancient culture. Local Cambodian artisans and culture bearers will share their expertise on Cambodian arts and cultural practices, including Cambodian classical dance and costuming, drawing, shadow puppets, music and musical instruments, textiles, dressmaking, weddings, gardening, and cooking.  The festival will also have special areas dedicated to activities for children, Cambodian food vendors, and merchandise vendors.

The festival is sponsored in part by a generous grant from the Arts Council for Long Beach.  Additional funding and support is provided by the City of Long Beach, Los Angeles County 4th District Supervisor Don Knabe, corporate sponsors, foundations, and local businesses.
