The 60th Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration (24th December 2019, 3pm)

The 60th Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration

The annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration—presented by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors—provides Angelenos of all ages an opportunity to come together on December 24, and both experience and honor the dynamic, rich cultures of the County. During the free event, many diverse L.A.-based artists and community groups showcase their talent, artistry and traditions on The Music Center’s iconic Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage. Founded in 1959 by the late Kenneth Hahn (supervisor of the Second District of Los Angeles County from 1952-1992)—who was an advocate for access to the arts—the free three-hour live production features instrumental music, choral music and dance performances. The program is broadcast live in Southern California on PBS SoCal (KOCE), live-streamed on pbssocal.org and kcet.org and presented live at The Music Center. The program also repeats twice on KCET Christmas Day.

Make it your tradition to “Celebrate LA” this holiday season with the L.A. County Holiday Celebration. Watch it on PBS SoCal, see it at The Music Center, or stream it live on pbssocal.org.

The 59th Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration was named the winner of a 2019 Gold Telly Award for Television Craft, Use of Live Video; a Silver Telly for Television Entertainment; and a Silver Telly for Television Craft/Directing. The 58th Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration was named the winner of a 2018 Silver Telly Award for Television / Live Event and a Bronze Telly for Television / Craft Director.
