If you are wondering, “what’s COAST?”
Santa Monica’s COAST Open Streets Festival marries the concept of shutting down the street to cars with a cultural festival – back for its second year! This year, the City of Santa Monica is pulling off even more live music, interactive art stations, and loads of food. The route is two-miles long, so can easily be walked, biked, skated or navigated by wheelchair.  

A few of the Top Things COAST’s organizers are most excited for:

  • All-string female Mariachi band Las Collbrí (Farmers Market)
  • Hip-hop dance group Antics (COAST Stage, 1 p.m.)
  • Kiel Johnson and reDiscover Center build Dream Tree from repurposed materials (Sustainability Zone)
  • Twenty Minute Treks, guided tours from poets and historians (Ocean & Broadway, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.)

RSVP / share the Facebook event with your friends.
