One of the most cherished and anticipated events in the Santa Monica mountains is back for the 46th year. Hosted by the Topanga Community Center (TCC), a 501c3 non-profit, the Topanga Days festival has evolved from a local strawberry fair to an event that attracts world-class talent with its homegrown bohemian charm. Part music festival and part hometown fair, this three-day, family-friendly event includes musical acts on two stages, old school contests and games, a Fun Zone, local artisans, craft vendors, amazing food and the ever popular and widely anticipated Memorial Day parade. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the festival benefit the TCC, which is one of the last remaining community houses privately owned and managed by volunteers in the state of California.
This year’s headlining musical talent includes Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real, Grammy Award® winning Fantastic Negrito and LA’s own Orgōne. Over the course of three days, more than 28 acts will perform on 2 stages. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, stay hydrated, put on sun block and sit, dance, and relax while enjoying the warm hospitality and beautiful weather of the Santa Monica mountains.
In addition to the 3 headliners, Topanga Days will feature 11 other great bands, such as Pearl, Venice, The Greenhorn Brothers, Pete Pidgeon & Arcoda and The Disparrows on the main stage and over 15 more on its Corral Stage in the Community House.
Popular with children and adults alike, the contests and games are a highlight of the weekend. The Egg Toss, Three-Legged Race, Baby Derby, Bubble Gum Blowing and Pie Eating are among the weekend’s many contests that make for unparalleled excitement between musical acts. Not to forget, the ever-popular Fun Zone, with bounce houses, face painting and human whack-a-mole is not to be missed.
Another high point of the weekend is the feel-good Topanga Days Memorial Day Parade on Monday morning, May 27th. The community’s creativity and vibrant personality is magnificently displayed through an array of original floats that capture the essence of Topanga. The parade ends at the entrance of the Topanga Community Center, where the festival continues with a flag raising ceremony honoring members of the military. All members of the armed forces and their families, past and present, with military I.D., receive free entrance to the Festival on Monday, May 27th.
Food fare ranges from BBQ and pizza to Mexican and Thai vegan, with old-fashioned kettle corn, funnel cakes, ice cream, smoothies and much more. There will be beer, wine and the TCC’s popular sangria bar for those with proper ID. Parking is available on Topanga Canyon Boulevard with a free shuttle service throughout the weekend.
