This is the first time the annual carnival, which is in its third year, will be held in the Venice area. The carnival runs from Noon-11:00pm each day, and is focused on attracting Venice residents and visitors who are already in Venice Beach – young children and families in particular. Mechanical rides and games will be set up, and LAPD officers will be on hand to interact and meet with attendees. The Bureau estimates that attendance could be as high as 15,000 people per day.

Street closures begin Wednesday, July 11 at noon, run through Midnight on Sunday, July 15, and are as follows:

Windward Avenue from Pacific Ave to Main Street will be fully closed beginning at Noon on Wednesday (7/11) until approximately 6:00 AM on Monday (7/16)
