The Armenian Festival of Orange County was featured in the recent newsletter of the Orange County Great Park Multicultural Center (published Oct. 21, 2007).
The Great Park is an ambitious project headed by the City of Irvine (California) to convert the former El Toro Marine Base to, among other things, a large park nearly twice the size of New York’s Central Park. A Multicultural Center is planned as part of the Great Park and it will showcase the many cultures that coexist in the Orange Country region.
The Executive Committee of the Armenian Festival of Orange County is working to ensure that Armenian American culture will be represented in the project.
AGBU Orange County takes part every year in the Armenian Festival of Orange County.
