In continuing efforts to keep you and your family safe, and at the request of the Los Angeles Police Department, Valley Cultural Center, along with the Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles Fire Department and Councilman, Bob Blumenfield – are implementing additional safety and security measures at this year’s event. One significant change will be securing the park area itself. This year, there will be five designated points of entry. Read full press release, including park access, parking, and LAPD safety and security measures.
For your comfort, you may bring blankets, low chairs (under 3′ height), tarps and pillows. Canopies, umbrellas or EZ-ups are permitted UNTIL the concert starts. Once the announcements begin, you must take these items down. You may NOT use stakes to keep your blankets in place as they are a safety hazard. There are to be no grills or open flames of any kind in the park. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are permitted and we encourage you to visit our food court on the west end for more options. Please keep animals tethered and respect your neighbors by being mindful of your space and the view of others.
