The annual Brentwood Art Festival happens this Sunday, April 24 on San Vicente Boulevard between Barrington and Bundy starting at 10 a.m. The street will be closed-off to showcase over 100 local artists and their work. The event will double as a food truck festival with a who’s who list of L.A.’s most popular truks on hand.
The festival had taken place twice-a-year since its inception in 1994– happening one time in the spring and another in the fall, but is now a once-a-year affair according to the festival’s artist sign up page. What was once a street-front event with a handful of artists has blossomed into a major event in Brentwood and the surrounding communities.
The art booths at the festival aren’t limited to painting. Some feature wild designs of furniture and jewelry pieces, most of which are available for purchase. Canvas paintings, scenic photographers and even duct tape art are just a small sample of the colorful range you’ll catch on the street.
Baby’s Badass Burgers and Palazzolo’s Gelato Truck are just a few of the big names in L.A. food trucks posting up at the festival. This year’s map of booths has been made public— you can view it here or grab copies on site.
LAist.com calls the festival an ideal way to spend the day for the entire family. The festival has a kids-zone where you can purchase tickets– carnival style, for painting activities, snow cones, a bounce house and a giant slide.
