If you’re looking for something fun this weekend, head to downtown Culver City for their 100th anniversary celebration–the Block Party of the Century!
This Saturday, September 24th from 12-4:30pm, the yearlong birthday celebration will have its exciting kickoff party! With entertainment ranging from samba dancers to indie musicians, face painting to chalk art, there will be fun for the whole family.
The part of the event I’ll be looking the most forward to is the Taste of Culver City, with restaurants like Akasha, City Tavern, Pieology, and more, providing tasty bites all afternoon long.
If you haven’t been to Culver City lately, the downtown scene has been utterly transformed into a hip, fun, trendy mix of boutiques, historic buildings, galleries, theaters, and more. It also happens to be the scene of an amazing (and DELICIOUS) culinary scene. I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the cuisine from places like Akasha, and it truly is a foodie’s paradise. There’s no shortage of inventive, delicious, gourmet food in the Culver City area.
This weekend’s event is going to be one you won’t want to miss. There truly will be something for everyone! As President of the Culver City Downtown Business Association Eric Sims said, ““I love this event because it exemplifies Culver City today: a vibrant hub bustling with artists, entrepreneurs, young families and longtime residents, all of whom are deeply committed to the community.” You’ll get to experience the amazing variety of food, entertainment, and more at this weekend’s event.
