Go Metro to the Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture this weekend in Grand Park

Are you walking, biking, or skating CicLAvia this Sunday? Rest your weary legs in Grand Park, home to our favorite hot pink benches, spectacular Downtown views, and this weekend–the Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture!

Presented by Grand Park and FilAM Arts, the 23rd Annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture will run this Saturday, October 4 from 12 – 8 p.m., and this Sunday, October 5 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. The celebration is free to attend and features an array of Filipino and Asian cuisine, live entertainment from top Filipino American performers, shopping, story telling, and traditional dances and martial arts.

Go Metro to Grand Park by hoping aboard the Red or Purple Line, or one of many Rapid and Local buses serving Grand Avenue, Hill, 1st or Temple Streets. You’ll not only save on gas, parking, and stress, but festival attendees with valid TAP cards save 10% at participating vendors of food merchandise, and more!

  1. Also on Saturday (and this time, I didn’t screw up the date!), the International Printing Museum (Torrance Blvd, just east of Figueroa) is hosting the 6th Annual Los Angeles Printers Fair, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. $10 admission.

    The closest Metro service appears to be a number of bus stops at the corner of Torrance Blvd and Vermont Ave.; from there, walk about half a mile east on Torrance, past Alpine Village, under the freeway, and just past the antique shop and the Ebenezer Church.

    (And I still don’t know how I managed to screw up the date last weekend; it’s not like I didn’t know what weekend the fair is!)
