Los Angeles’ Thai Town is the only ethnic business district in the US specifically dedicated to the Thai American community. This area of East Hollywood has been home to the Thai American community since the 1960s. Since its founding in 1994, Thai Community Development Center has been working to preserve and develop the neighborhood through multiple creative placekeeping efforts that center the Thai culture and identity, including hosting an annual Songkran, or Thai New Year, festival that draws over 400,000 people from all over the region.
