Los Angeles Weekend Events April 18-19


It’s a great weekend to live in Los Angeles. Check out some of the events not far afield for all ages:

Content-ExhibitorsLA Times Festival of Books: The 20th Annual Festival of Books is hosted at USC again this year with an outstanding list of authors and books, music, food, culture, and art expected to be visited by 150,000 Angelenos. The Festival of Books is free to the public to wander the grounds and visit publishers tents, vendors tables, and hear some live music and soak up some sunshine. Access to Conversations with authors is ticketed due to size of venues, with tickets reserved online for as little as $1 and some available at the door. See the Festival of Books websitefor complete schedule and details on parking and access.


NHM Pavilion of Wings & Live Animal PresentationButterfly Pavilion at the Natural History Museum: More than 30 native North American butterfly species and an array of plants take up residence every summer for the Butterfly Pavilion. Wander through a unique changing ecosystem, witness free-flying creatures interacting with plant life, and emerge with a better understanding of the environment needed for the survival of these spectacular animals on wing. A great way to learn more about becoming a Monarch Waystation from citizen scientists and gardeners. Learn more on the NHM website, and reserve your admission tickets ($17/adults, $8/children, free for NHM members.)

In its fifth year, Brokechella is located at 590 Santa Fe Ave, in the heart of downtown. Tickets are $20 online via the Brokechella website, and $25 at the door.
