Chinatown Los Angeles Summer Nights. As many city has a Chinatown, the Chinatown in Los Angeles has an incredible history. Back by popular demand, the third annual Chinatown Summer Nights promises to be spectacular with a fresh lineup of great food, art and music. LA Chinatown, host to CSN, will present a total of four events occurring the second and fourth Saturday in July and August. Each event is represented by a different element: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Part food event, part summer party, Chinatown Summer Nights offers Los Angeles a truly unique and immersive experience outside of the usual summer festival fare. Visitors will be able to experience the many culinary offerings of Chinatown through Iron Chef-style cooking competitions, great dining by local restaurants serving authentic Chinese and Asian cuisine and non-stop noshing at LA’s best gourmet food trucks. Music combined with interactive art pulses through all four nights—from dancing on Chinatown’s large outdoor dance floor with KCRW DJs Jason Bentley, Jeremy Sole, Anthony Valadez, Valida and more, to curated large-scale outdoor video projections. Attendees of all ages can also take part in hands-on, Chinese cultural activities and watch some of the best local music acts in LA. The mission of the Los Angeles Chinatown Business Council is to creatively plan, manage and facilitate the rebirth of historic Chinatown as a multinational culturally defined, economically vibrant and socially engaging community.
