Metro + Festival of Books = music, food, art, culture and fun

festival of books expo

Free, fun and open to all! The L.A. Times Festival of Books takes place this weekend, April 9 – 10 at USC. Due to a large-scale event taking place at the L.A. Coliseum next door on April 9, traffic and parking is expected to be particularly gnarly and transit is highly recommended.

Go Metro and save 10% on your total purchase of official 2016 Festival of Books merchandise, including mugs, T-shirts, and more! To receive the discount, show your valid TAP card upon checkout wherever official merchandise is sold.

To get to the Festival of Books, take the Metro Expo Line to Expo Park/USC Station or the Metro Silver Line to 37th Street/USC. The DASH F bus is another good option, and there will also be a free Festival Shuttle Bus running from Union Station Patsaouras Bus Plaza to the USC campus. My personal travel preference to the Festival of Books is to take the shuttle from Union Station, which drops me off at the northeast end of USC. Then I make my way across the campus and leave via Expo Park/USC Station.

The Festival of Books will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
