The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
The Culver City Arts District will present its first annual Summer Solstice event on Saturday, June 21, from 12:00 PM to 7:00 pm. The Summer Solstice event -- to celebrate the longest day of the year -- will be a great time to check out all the galleries throughout the district. There will also be musical performances throughout the day at various venues, children’s arts and crafts, and special discounts at area restaurants and retail.
Musical performances will be provided in coordination with Make Music LA as part of a global musical festival taking place in more than 700 cities around the world.
As parking in the area is limited, guests are encouraged to carpool or take public transportation to the event. In fact, the Arts District is located quite near to the the Culver City Expo Stop, to the east. Metro riders will receive special Destination Discounts at several restaurants and shops throughout the district when they show their TAP card. In addition, Culver CityBus will be offering a special $1 bus fare for guests that will allow unlimited travel between Downtown Culver City and Fairfax Avenue from 12 pm – 7 pm. Guests may board the bus at participating Culver CityBus stops and purchase bus passes from the driver on the day of the event.
Parking for the Summer Solstice event is available in Downtown Culver City parking structures with limited parking at the Helms Bakery Complex, the Exceptional Children’s Foundation, the Goodyear Plaza and along Washington Blvd. and La Cienega Blvd. Guests are advised to refrain from parking in the residential area surrounding the Culver City Art District.
The event is also sponsored by the City of Culver City, the Culver City Chamber of Commerce, Visual Art Source, ArtScene, art ltd. and LAArtParty.com.
