barnsdall park wine tasting

Barnsdall Art Park

4800 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, 90027

5:30pm

(AUG. 1) Normally a wine tasting doesn’t sound like a very kid-friendly event.  But this isn’t your normal wine tasting.  Unwind and enjoy the beautiful Barnsdall Art Park as the sun is setting, from the gated gardens of the historic Hollyhock House. Silverlake Wine presents four selections of boutique, small production, artisanal wines from around the globe. Everyone brings blankets and picnics (or gets treats from a selection of changing food trucks, which usually includes kid favorites like Let’s Be Frank and Cool Haus), there is a DJ, arts and crafts for kids, and a general community party atmosphere.  Kids are welcome, and the $5 entrance fee for kids gets them a juice box tasting and the chance to do some fun crafts.

All profits from the wine tastings benefit Barnsdall Art Park Foundation programs and projects, such as Free Sunday Art Classes for children and families in the community, as well as capital projects like the Monument Sign.

AUGUST 1 – LAS CAFETERAS
Las Cafeteras sprouted in 2006 as students who enjoyed Son Jarocho classes & decided to share the magic of this folk music from Southern Veracruz with the public. Las Cafeteras has opened for groups including Ozomatli, Zack de la Rocha (of Rage Against the Machine), La Santa Cecilia, Fool’s Gold, Quetzal & more. Las Cafeteras combines the vibrant energy of Son Jarocho music with an edgy LA-alternative sound & political message. Their pounding Afro-Mexican rhythms, stomping zapateado dancing, and uplifting lyrics tell stories of everyday people.
