The Abbot Kinney Festival 2023 is finally here on September 24, 2023! The popular Los Angeles event attracts over 150,000 attendees! Experience the vibrant energy along 3/4 mile of Abbot Kinney Boulevard, where brands connect with their audience and guests indulge in food, art, music and community while strolling this iconic street in Venice Beach!

Remember Venice is all about art. In addition to painters, photographers, this annual Venice festival features fantastic jewelry, and clothing designers…enjoy the live music and djs too. 

Enjoy one-of-a-kind art, immersive activations, artisanal vendors, and a variety of delicious food,  Also let’s not forget the live musical performances, entertaining beer gardens, kids rides and more, AKF will offer guests an enchanting view of the Venice Beach Lifestyle and the culture it embodies.

Come support artists and hear local bands. Most of the clothing and jewelry is created by artists. Additional items include: ceramics, handbags, accessories, shoes, and lots more. Always a fun event, each year the event attracts hundreds of people from all over the LA area and of course tourists (both national and international).

I have been attending since I first arrived in LA (1999). The mile-long street’s eclectic boutiques and artisan eateries infuse the festival with local Venice flavor. Yes the event was canceled during the pandemic, so we are all excited that its back.

Remember….this is Venice, if you don’t live anywhere close by, take a lyft or bike. Parking is a real pain in Venice….especially during the Abbot Kinney Festival.
