Art installations and gourmet food trucks will be at Pan Pacific Park. Art-making and cultural activities for all ages will be offered through the Korean Cultural Center, the Japan Foundation, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, the Holocaust Museum LA and other partners.

Hip-hop and breakdancing workshops will be offered, and a Kids Creativity Lab with face painters and balloon artists will be sponsored by Television City Studios. Petersen Automotive Museum and Waymo will showcase state-of-the-art vehicles. The event is produced by Launch LA.

“Tarfest has been part of the Los Angeles community for more than 20 years, remaining an annual free event through massive changes that have transformed the city and our neighborhood,” Launch LA and Tarfest Founder James Panozzo said in a release.
