The Festival Off Abbot Kinney



This Sunday in Venice the street festivals take over.  From 10 am-6pm the street GQ Magazine crowned the “Coolest block in America” back in 2012 will shut down for the 31st annual Abbot Kinney Festival.

While down the road, from 12 noon until 6pm, General Admission will hold their own mini festival in their car park at 52 Brooks Ave.

The Off AK Street Fair will feature local businesses such as Juice Served Here, Lone Wolfs, and Big Red Sun.
