Abbot Kinney Festival on Venice Beach Sept. 28, 2008
Celebrating the 24th Annual Abbot Kinney Festival ...
**September 28,2008, VENICE will become the ultimate block party in celebration of the 24th annual Abbot Kinney Festival. Renowned for eclectic shopping and world class restaurants, Abbot Kinney Blvd will be closed to traffic from Main St. to Venice Blvd to accommodate 3 stages of live music, dancers and performance artists, a spectacular Family Courtyard, Traditional festival and ethnic foods, Beer Garden, Green Living Area and over 300 vendors featuring original, handcrafted goods.
**This year, AKDA is proud to announce that ABBOT KINNEY GOES GREEN! With the goal to be a zero waste event, we are encouraging recycling, providing carbon offsets and not allowing our vendors to use plastic bags or Styrofoam. In the "Green Living Area" there are environmentally conscious vendors and non-profits, interactive events, workshops and innovative ideas on Green living. We ask everyone to please bike to the event (there will be a bike valet), or take public transportation. If you plan to drive, remember parking is very limited. For those who plan to shop, we have cloth tote bags for sale - and if you have your own, then bring those too!
