The weekend-long celebration will feature outdoor theatrical and dance performances, storytelling, youth performances, live art and a public marketplace with nearly 30 artists creating and/or selling their work on-site.
“Los Angeles is home to a powerful, diverse arts scene with boundless creativity,” said Rachel Moore, president and CEO of The Music Center. “Grand Park’s Our L.A. Voices: Spring Arts Festival will create a home for these artists and provide a beautiful setting for them to perform and display their work while connecting with new audiences,”
With the inaugural theme of “What does it mean to be a citizen?”, the festival’s line-up will probe issues of belonging and alienation as well cultural equity and inclusion. Several theaters such as The Fountain, Antics’ Dance will spotlight this important issue along with Grand Park’s PROUD Stories.

In addition, the festival will include youth performances by the Pomona Youth Orchestra, Little Kids Rock, and Jose Hernandez Mariachi Heritage Society, pop-up performances and many other opportunities to experience the arts throughout the park.
