The L.A. Times Festival of Books takes over USC this weekend with music, food, films, books, books and more books! The event is free to attend; hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Getting to the Festival of Books without driving is a snap. Metro has three rail stations that serve the USC area off the Expo Line: Jefferson/USC, Expo Park/USC and Expo/Vermont. Both the Blue and Expo lines will see enhanced service during event hours to accommodate attendees. The Metro Silver Line also drops off at 37th/USC, and another option for those starting their trips from DTLA is the DASH F.
Due to the Patsaouras Plaza closure this weekend, the free Festival Shuttle Bus will be picking up passengers from Union Station at Cesar Chavez/Alameda. Connect with the shuttle via the Gold, Purple or Red Line. Signage will be placed around Union Station directing festival attendees to the shuttle stop.
As an added bonus, those who go Metro can save 10% on official FOB merchandise! Show your valid TAP card wherever festival merchandise is sold and save on your total purchase.
