New York (TADIAS) — The annual Little Ethiopia Street Festival and Enkutatash celebration in Los Angeles will take place this coming weekend featuring live music, standup comedy, fashion show, food, and cultural dance performances.

“The cultural festival, which marks its 14th anniversary this year, is an officially designated city event that celebrates the diversity of LA,” says Berhanu Asfaw, President of the Little Ethiopia Business Association.

Little Ethiopia, which lies on the stretch of Fairfax Avenue in the Pico­ Robertson neighborhood of Los Angeles, has a high concentration of Ethiopian businesses and restaurants as well as a significant number of residents of East African ancestry.

Berhanu told Tadias that the city’s Attorney, Mike Feuer, will attend the 2015 festival on Sunday, September 13th. “We also expect other officials from the City Council and perhaps the Mayor if his schedules allows,” Berhanu adds. “We have sent the invitation.”
