5 Can’t-Miss Spring and Summer Events in Los Angeles
Even though the winter months may not be snowy here in Los Angeles, there’s still something magical about spring and summer coming around the corner. Let’s face it: for L.A. residents, 60-degree winters are chilly enough for us to be excited about sunnier skies.
Whether you’re visiting this season or you’re a local, don’t think that heading to the beach or taking a studio tour are your only options. From music festivals to Broadway shows, there are events coming up for everyone to enjoy.
What: Music Festival
Where: Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA
Price: Passes are around $400 for admission to all three days of the festival
There’s no better way to kick off spring than attending the country’s most famous music festival. With a line-up packed with huge stars like Travis Scott and Rage Against the Machine, you won’t want to miss the event that everyone will be talking about.
Bus Tip: When planning your Coachella experience, you may notice that the venue is a little off the beaten path. The campgrounds in Indio are about 2 hours outside the city, which can be daunting if you aren’t familiar with the area. If you’re flying in to attend the festival, rent an LAX charter bus to meet your group at the airport and bring you straight to the campgrounds, so all you have to worry about is which headliner you’re most excited to see.
VegFest Los Angeles
What: Vegan Food Festival
Where: Woodley Park in Lake Balboa
When: Early May
Price: Admission is free, but bring some cash to shop around with
It can be hard to find vegan-friendly food at most events – usually, you’re stuck picking a salad while you watch your friends chow down on a variety of treats. But the tables have turned at this all-vegan food fest, featuring an international food court, live music, powerful speakers discussing health and environmentalism, and more!
Bus Tip: A free event in L.A. can be hard to come by, so you’ll want to invite your entire friend group to this one. Instead of coordinating several cars, rent a minibus that can fit your entire group so that you can be sure to arrive together. Ask your reservation specialist for a minibus with WiFi onboard, so you’ll be able to post all of your insta-worthy food pics with ease.
What: LGBTQ+ Pride Festival
Where: West Hollywood Park along San Vicente Boulevard, and in the Pacific Design Center Plaza
When: Early June
Price: A single day pass is $35, or you can pay $55 and get admission all weekend
If you love live music, parades, and block parties, this festival is for you. Packed full of events and programs curated for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, this event will have something for everyone to enjoy.
Bus Tip: L.A. pride is one of the most popular events of the summer, with last year’s festival bringing in a crowd of around 250,000 people. As if parking in West Hollywood wasn’t hard enough, with a crowd this large and roadblocks put in place for the parade, you won’t want to worry about snagging a spot each day. Instead, let an experienced charter bus driver handle the logistics for you, so all you have to do is pick where your crowd wants to be dropped off.
L.A. Food and Wine Festival
What: Culinary Festival
Where: Santa Monica
Price: Each event is priced individually, and tickets range from $20 to $200
Are you a connoisseur of fine foods? Always thought you could’ve been a food critic? Now’s your chance to put your skills (and cravings) to the test, at this four-day food and wine festival that brings together the best chefs and sommeliers from around the country to put on a series of tastings, informational events, and even a few after-parties.
Bus Tip: With over 75 wineries offering tastings throughout the festival, no one will want to be designated driver. Instead of asking one of your friends to miss out on the fun, have your group arrive in style with a professional driver and private charter bus that can bring your group to and from the festival, ensuring everyone makes it home safely.
Broadway in Hollywood Presents Hamilton
What: Travelling production of a Broadway musical
Where: Pantages Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard
When: March until the end of Summer
Price: Tickets start at $55
The most talked-about theatrical experience of the past decade is returning to L.A. this spring and summer. Tickets will go fast to this award-winning show, so don’t miss your chance to snag one while you still can!
Bus Tip: If you’re looking for a way to celebrate your employees that will be talked about for years to come, this event is for you. With special pricing available for corporate groups wanting to come enjoy the show, planning your next company outing just got easier. Hire a corporate charter bus to pick up all of your employees from the office and shuttle them to the theater, making this one of the most hassle-free office outings you’ve ever planned.
