Take Metro to East L.A. Summer ArtsFest 2013
By EGP Staff Report
“Summer ArtsFest 2013” gets underway Sunday at the East Los Angeles Civic Center and will include what’s being billed as an “all-day concert” with an array of live musical entertainment and evening “Fireworks Spectacular.”
Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina is encouraging the public to attend the free event on June 30th being put on in partnership with the L.A County Dept. of Park and Recreation.
The event includes an Artwalk, featuring local artists and crafters displaying their works, music by Conjunto Afro Son, Undercover Girls, JD Hall, White Tribute, Maryam Zadeh from Tapps, Tyrants in Therapy, The Flirts and Trans X, from 3-9p.m.
Easy access via the Metro Goldline Eastside Extension has made the East Los Angeles Civic Center a popular hub for cultural activities such as this Sunday’s ArtsFest, as well as a Center for county services — including a Sheriff’s station, regional library, county offices and courts.
Similar events are scheduled to take place at the civic center throughout the summer, on July 20, Aug. 3, and ending Sept. 3 with “The Taste of East L.A.”, ArtWalk, concert finale and bike ride.
Smaller free events, including Movies in the Park, Friday Jam Sessions/Dance Parties and farmer’s markets will take place throughout the summer, according to Molina’s office.
All of the events are free and open to the public.
This Sunday’s Firework Spectacular begins at 9:15 p.m.
