Apr 10, 2013 —  In the 21st Century, humans have migrated all over the map, sharing values and contributing to the emerging global culture. But as any traveler knows, nothing feels more like home than sharing a language and customs. To help preserve and celebrate their heritage, expats all over the world throw bustling national pride events.

In Los Angeles, the largest immigrant Korean community on earth shares its national pride at the annual Los Angeles Korean Festival. Since 1973, this event has showcased the Asian nation’s pop music, fashion, dance, and cuisine in honor of ancient traditions and contemporary culture.

At the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City, Puerto Ricans and Nuyoricans share their heritage with the thousands of people who line up along the Fifth Avenue parade route. With floats, colorful dancers, and one of the biggest Puerto Rican populations in the U.S., this NYC parade is one of the most popular ethnic gatherings in the city.

Across the Atlantic, London’s long history as an empire has brought about centuries of migration, making it one of the most diverse areas in the world. At Hyper Japan, Londoners dive into a wide range of Japanese culture, from a Kawaii Fashion Show, to anime film screenings and sake tastings.

Whether it’s in America’s metropolitan melting pots or Europe’s iconic cities, immigrant communities throw some of the best, most authentic celebrations of ethnic and national heritage. So get ready to sample global flavors, get buzzed on imported brews, and learn about different cultures at popular national pride events around the planet.
