feastofla.com. Thank you!

Feast INFO

In September of 2002, some of Los Angeles’ most prominent Italian American citizens got together and produced the first annual Feast of San Gennaro in Los Angeles, offering three days of enjoyment for the entire family. 

Just like the 80+ year old New York City tradition, the Galbani Italian Feast of San Gennaro Los Angeles celebrates Italian culture, food and entertainment, and features live music, street performers, strolling musicians, a kid’s corner, and many rides and games. In addition to sampling wine from local wineries and food from some of Los Angeles’ best Italian restaurants, guests are invited to learn recipes from the cooking stage and play bocce ball and bingo with some of Hollywood’s Italian American celebrities and much more!

Aug 23-28: ASICS World Series of Volleyball


August 23-28, 2016
700 East Shoreline Drive, Long Beach, CA 90802

The ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball is an unprecedented event, bringing together the world's best beach volleyball players, chart-topping musical artists, cutting-edge brands, and a host of beach-related activities for an epic week of elite competition and fun in the sun. This year's event takes place just days after closing ceremonies at the 2016 Rio Games, so the fourth annual WSOBV serves as both an end-of-summer party for beach lovers of all ages and a welcome home party for our USA and international beach volleyball Olympians.

SPIKED, L.A.'s ultimate beach volleyball bash, is kicking up the heat in Long Beach, Saturday, August 27th at the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball. Top DJs like Thomas Jack, Jillionaire and Branchez provide a sizzling soundtrack to summer as part of the Fiat Concert Series while board short- and bikini-clad beachgoers party and play all day in open 4s and 6s tournaments. Admission to L.A.'s biggest beach party is free, but space is limited so attendees are encouraged to come early.
