Celebrating culture in the community from around the Planet, right here in the NoHo Arts District.
The goal for the Back-to-School International Day Festival 2016 is to make the transition from Summer 2016 vacation to Back-to-School a breeze with more than 50 vendors, a stage concert, food trucks, and more.
You won’t want to miss hip hop violinists Chargaux at the festival!
“The Festival is located in one of the most diverse Los Angeles communities inside and outside of the San Fernando Valley, which is a powerful location to celebrate the wealth of global culture via music, food, art, and dance in our own backyard,” says festival producer Annie Burks.
Why did you decide to do this event?
We are professional producers for events and TV by trade, with a background in large-scale event production for Anheuser-Busch and concert music tours. Our team, Electric Sensory Productions llc (ESP llc), chose to produce the Back-to-School International Day Festival 2016 to foster social development, cross-cultural communication, cultural education, and community. Rarely do cultural events occur in Los Angeles that are all-inclusive where people from all backgrounds and cultures feel welcome and nurtured, therefore we have transformed this reality into a new one. Our goal is to enjoy the community in which we live by producing a Festival that celebrates our lives as productive citizens, residents, and neighbors who are unique within our cultural identity rather than the politics, racism, sexism, abnormal fear, and economic status that divide and hide our ethnic beauty and cultural contributions.
