The LA Summer Festival Master Calendar LA Street Food Fest
Now that you've made plans for which
outdoor movie screenings you're going to hit this summer (so, all of them?), it's time to make plans for which festivals you're going to hit this summer (so... all of them, too?). Especially now that you've got this list of EVERY SINGLE FESTIVAL in one place. FYI: we'll be updating throughout the summer, so eventually it WILL have every single one. So, go ahead and bookmark... now.
Uh, a pop-up underground art show in a warehouse filled with booze and all-you-can-eat pancakes? Suck it, IHOP.
Sure, they’ve got live music, burgers, and beer, but where’s the bocce ball you might be asking? Well stop asking, 'cause they’ve got that, too.
Wanna see U2, The Beatles, Journey, Bob Marley, Elton John, The Police, Queen, and The Rolling Stones all on the same day? Never gonna happen, ever, but you can almost sort of see them at this tribute band blowout show.
Arcadia’s biggest Asian-themed night market finally makes its way to OC, again. Check out more than 200 vendors, complete with food, beer, art, and music.
Missed the LA event in April? Head down to the OC and get your drink on.
$180 for four days of music in the middle of the desert. Camp there, 'cause duh.
Greek Fest brings you three days of live music, authentic Greek food, and tours of the church. Opa!
Even if "vegan" is a trigger word for you, this festival blasts out actually-good, non-animal food, plus beer, which is double-good. Added bonus: great bands, including recent Coachella Americana-rockers Jamestown Revival.
Contests, live music, strawberry beer, and an estimated 1.5 million strawberries. If y’all like strawberries, this seems like a reasonable event to attend.

More than 80 taco vendors fill the streets of Downtown for this event, which's already sold out (bummer!) but you can probably find tickets on the FB page or Stubhub as it gets closer (not-bummer!).

Major chefs (including Susan Feniger and Phillip Franklin Lee) are doling out samples and pairings.
There isn't a more boisterous audience than the one at Playboy Jazz Fest, nor one that's better to people watch at. And the music's pretty great, too.
The eight-day-long week (who's counting?) kicks off with 75 craft breweries, two stages of live music, and, of course, food trucks.
It sounds ridiculous, but the chalk artists here will blow. You. Away.
An all-Rose wine festival? Yeah. It's a thing.
