The Best Events & Things to Do in Los Angeles This Weekend

Happy June! Here’s a quick guide of the best events and things to do going on in Los Angeles this weekend. What are your weekend plans?

The 14th Annual Lummis Days
Lummis Days returns May 31 through June 2 for a celebration that gathers the community to honor the arts, history and ethnic diversity of Northeast Los Angeles through a number of educational and cultural events. FREE

Barnsdall Art Park’s Friday Night Wine Party Series
Spend the season sipping wine during sunset hour. Happening on the lawn of architectural gem the Hollyhock House the evening features a fine selection of wines curated by Silverlake Wine, a live DJ and tours of the house. The series happens every Friday evening till September 6.

Friday Night Jazz at LACMA
Perhaps my favorite summer music series in LA, Friday Night Jazz is back every Friday this summer with an impressive roster of musicians.

Latin Sounds at LACMA
And if Friday Night Jazz wasn’t  enough for you, spend your Saturday evenings with world-renowned artists as they play everything from Indigenous works to the latest sounds from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, and Los Angeles! Featured artists have included Dori Caymmi, Costazul, Echo Park Project, Mongorama, and  Chuchito Valdes. Latin Sounds is presented Saturday evenings from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Clare V Sample Sale
5/31,11am – 06/02, ROW DTLA, Free entry
Annual feeding frenzy where Clare V offers their normal stuff for extremely marked down prices. Not just bags – scarves, wallets, candles, etc. Great for gifts.

LA Pride Week
May 31 – June 9 for community-oriented events designed to support the LGBTQ+ community from West Hollywood and beyond. This year’s events include the LGBT Night at Dodger Stadium on May 31, the 3rd Annual LA Pride Night at Universal Studios Hollywood on June 1, and the 2019 Trans Brunch on June 2.

Friday Night Flights
Grand Central Market hosts Friday Night Flights this Friday starting at noon. The special includes a flight of drinks or bites from GCM vendors and a round trip ticket on the historic Angels Flight Railway right across the street for $15.

Pasadena Symphony & POPS presents ‘Music Under The Stars’
The free outdoor concert also features gourmet food trucks, a musical instrument petting zoo, and other types of family fun. Picnics are encouraged for this annual event. FREE

The 14th Annual LAWineFest
June 1-2 for unlimited tastings from various wineries, artisan brands and even breweries on both a local and national level. Happening at The Pike Outlets in Long Beach, highlights include conversations with the winemakers, live music, gourmet food trucks and tastings from local restaurants.

Non-profit The Cat Cafe has a new popup kitchen lounge called Tiny Beans
Guests can interact with adoptable kittens for a fee. The sad fact is that many shelters do not have the capacity to care for kittens and that can result in euthanizing them. Tiny Beans aims to spread the word to help save as many kittens as possible all summer long.

High Tide
Great new-ish bar in the Arts District with a hot pink patio, brunch menu, frosé all day and live glassblowing.

Urban Air Market
The traveling marketplace  returns to Los Feliz Village on Sunday with more than 100 emerging designer pop-ups and support from neighborhood shops and restaurants. Free to attend.

Aduke African Cuisine
The best traditional Nigerian food in LA just arrived at Pico and La Cienega. Once a catering company, it’s now a full service restaurant. Many say the shining star of Aduke is Aduke herself, both the owner and chef.

Book Show LA
Sideshow-themed quirky book store in Highland Park that hosts events from poetry readings to craft nights. Has a pay-it-forward program and community focus. Looking for contributions to help them expand in July.

CineMyth Film Series – Dead Man
June 2nd, Philosophical Research Society
A demythologizing of Jim Jarmusch’s postmodern revisionist western Dead Man. Free popcorn and BYOB drinks during the screening, followed by an exploration of the film’s mythic motifs and its commentary on America’s treatment of the sacred over the last two centuries.

LA River Kayaking
Just reopened this week. Paddle with trained river locals in Frogtown. They’ll tell you river lore!

Taco Bell Hotel
In case you haven’t heard, a Taco Bell hotel and resort called “The Bell” is coming to Palm Springs this August. Reservations go live in June.

Enjoy your weekend!
