2019 Harvest Festival in Griffith Park

 

Celebrate autumn’s glory in L.A.’s largest urban park! Now in its third year, the Griffith Park Harvest Festival is an all-day celebration that brings together visitors & residents from across Los Angeles on Veteran’s Day weekend. We invite you to join us at the festival for live music, a variety of innovative food trucks, a beer garden featuring independent craft brews, dozens of local vendor booths, plus a Kids Zone that includes a climbing wall, bounce houses, pumpkin painting, and more. Once the sun sets, we’ll be screening the acclaimed Disney-Pixar film “Coco” under the stars. The Harvest Festival is fun for the whole family, so we hope to see you November 10th in Griffith Park.
