This third annual summer event series is an art show, concert, food fest and summer party all in one.

From the event website:

Taste the many culinary offerings of Chinatown and LA's gourmet food trucks; sample the neighborhood's wares; watch Chinese chefs perform cooking demonstrations; experience large-scale, outdoor video projections; take part in hands-on, Chinese cultural activities presented by local organizations and museums; sip on Chinese beer and dance in Central Plaza with 89.9 KCRW's DJ's!

Each of the three installments -- taking place July 28, Aug. 11 and Aug. 25 -- is represented by a different element (earth, water and fire). The event runs till midnight each evening.
