Love Festival for Developmental Disabilities
A timely and unique celebration
Held every year since 2000 as “Festival” of disabilities’ creativity and co-creation, the developmental disabilities’ LOVE Festival has evolved into the largest Korean American children’s celebration and a permanent quadrennial event in out Nation’s Capital. The LOVE Festival pulls together America’s diverse communities around their shared concern for children, their health, and creative education. Open to the public, the LOVE Festival attracts more than 1,500 attendees. This year, we held LOVE Festival on May 13th, 2017, at Whittier Narrows Park.
‘Love Share Bazaar’ is hosted by Korea daily, KAVC, and Joins America, and is a public service that supports Homeless community with the entire raised fund through Bazaar. We achieved results of more than 5,000 people participating and raised more than $30,000.
