It’s only rock ’n’ roll, but we like it.

Eagle Rock Music Festival
What: Support the local arts and catch more than 70 acts along a seven-block stretch of the neighborhood’s main boulevard.

Where: Colorado Blvd., b/t Argus Dr. & Eagle Rock Blvd. N., Eagle Rock. Suggested donation is $10; kids under 14 are free.

Abbot Kinney Festival
The annual block party celebrating youth, arts, and beautification programs turns AK up a notch with crafts, beer gardens, and three stages of music.
