The first annual Off-Sunset Festival, held in 2013, was an exciting day of music, culture, art, food and fun populated by over 5000 people. 2017 is expected to clock in at over 10,000, taking the party to the streets at an event that promises to be even bigger and better than last year. What better way to kick off summer than by luxuriating in Los Angeles’ legendary sunshine as it spotlights an area spanning over half mile of:
- Live music
- DJ-driven dancing
- Gourmet food trucks
- Festival foods
- Beer trailers
- Ice-cold specialty drinks
- Dozens of hand-picked merchandise, art and novelty vendors
The Off-Sunset Association was formed by a group of individuals who live, work and play in the Silverlake area. It is with great affection for this diverse community that we organized the Off-Sunset Festival. We own businesses here. We frequent the local restaurants and bars. We spend time in this incredible section of Los Angeles and are committed to enriching the neighborhoods that have given each and every one of us so very much.
The Off-Sunset Festival Community Grant Program awards a series of grants to selected nonprofit organizations that offer services and programs in the Silverlake and surrounding areas. Festival proceeds enable us to provide financial support toward beautification, art, and youth programs with an emphasis on the LGBT community. Grant applications and guidelines are available at www.offsunsetfestival.com.
