At events throughout the year, CicLAvia invites you to run (or walk or bike or skate) free through the streets of LA along a multi-mile, car-free street party while enjoying live music and activities along the way. The free event takes place in different parts of town each time, like the upcoming 8-mile route that will connect Disney Concert Hall in Downtown to the Hollywood Bowl.
Pick avocados, figs, oranges, and more for free all over the city (and the world), thanks to maps created by this LA-based art collective. They’ve also planted orchards of fruit trees in parks around town, and have created an interactive map that lets you add the location of trees in your neighborhood.

MoviePass may be folding like an empty bag of popcorn, but you can still see tons of movies all over LA at outdoor screenings -- many of them for the low cost of nothing. Whether it’s Front Porch Cinema on the Santa Monica Pier or the Silver Lake Picture Show, all you have to worry about is stocking that cooler (and arriving in time to grab a seat).
Let’s face it: As much as you may like the idea of reading, most of your literary journeys take place while stuck in traffic listening to Audible. Take the book-on-iPhone experience to a new level by actually hearing (and seeing) the author in person as they read from their latest at bookstores around the city. ALOUD at the Central Library is also a great chance to do that, but good luck getting a seat if you’re not a member.
For all the burritos that you’ve consumed in your lifetime, maybe it’s time you shared a few with others. Join hundreds of other generous folks in making and distributing burritos (and other supplies) to homeless individuals around Los Angeles.
That’s right, Brennan’s famous turtle racing has returned to the decades-old Marina del Rey bar on the first and third Thursday of each month following a snappy renovation. Cheer on Rudy, Cooper, Lady Grace, and the rest of the heroes in a half shell, sip cold beer, and enter the raffle where you can win free beer, gift cards, and other swag. Then return on Fridays from 4-7pm to chow down on gratis cheese and pepperoni pizza, alongside bands and DJs in the beer garden.
