August 30 - September 1
It’s always nice to save some of the best food fests for last, and that’s exactly what happens at The Taste. It’s always presented by the LA Times, which means that you can bet a Jonathan Gold tribute will be at the heart of the event. Expect some of the best food our city has to offer, with a treasure trove of vendors including Roberta's Pizza, Milk Bar, Badmaash, and LASA (among many, many others).
August 30 - September 22
You know the drill when it comes to a county fair: games, rides, weird shows, probably some live animals, and more deep-fried things than you’ve ever seen. When are you ever gonna get the chance to try deep fried Coca-Cola again?
