2017 has been a wild year. If you’ve been looking to unwind in LA, you’re in luck. Summer is about to kick off some great events and if you’re wise, you’ll sneak into the pre-summer events to avoid the tourists. Here’s a great mix of local SoCal events that you won’t want to miss.

Top Southern California Events

Taste of the Nation

Alright foodies, here it is! Time to stockpile your Instagram with enough tasty treats and savory eats from over 40 chefs to make all of your followers jealous. This is in addition to award-winning local wineries. The best part is that as you fill your belly, you help feed children in need with proceeds going towards the fight to end childhood hunger.
Date: June 11, 12:30-4 p.m.
Location: Media Park, 9070 Venice Blvd., Culver City

I cringe at anyone that misses this great local event that sweeps over Hollywood and LA in June. Hundreds of local, national, and international productions are presented by some of the most talented arts companies and performers. Taking place in over a dozen locations, you simply can’t miss it.

Come back to reality by connecting with others during workshops or listening to the many panels and guest speakers.
