On Sunday, Sept. 30 the LA Phil kicks off its centennial season with Celebrate LA!, a FREE celebration with hundreds of musicians, artists, dancers, family activities and more.
Produced in partnership with CicLAvia and Community Arts Resources (CARS), Celebrate LA! will be an epic, history-making festival that showcases L.A.’s creative spirit. The eight-mile street party will feature 1,800 musicians, artists, and dancers coming together to perform at the festival’s six hubs and along the route itself.
The evening culminates with a free concert at the Hollywood Bowl, where Gustavo Dudamel will lead the Los Angeles Philharmonic and welcome very special guests – including Katy Perry, Herbie Hancock, Kali Uchis, Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), and more to the Bowl stage.
Starting at 9am on Sept. 30, you’ll be free to walk, run, skate, scoot, bike, and wander through the car-free streets, where six hubs will host performance stages, art installations, food trucks, screen printing, family-friendly activities, and more. Think of it as an eight-mile free space saved just for you!
