2016 SoRo Community Festival

SoRo Community Festival

The 19th Annual SoRo Community Festival will take place on Sunday, June 5, 2016 from 11 am to 4 pm. The Festival is located on South Robertson Boulevard, between Cattaraugus and Cadillac St. (just north of Hamilton High School and the 10 Freeway). Free street parking is also available.

Free and open to the public, the SoRo Festival features a live music stage, tree adoption, and over 60 vendor booths highlighting neighborhood businesses, community information and a variety of merchandise. It also offers “Camp SoRo” Kids Zone with attractions, a rock-climbing wall and free arts and crafts for children. 

For the first time, SORO NC will hold its election at the Festival itself. Make sure to stop by the polling tents and vote for the future of our community.

Also new this year: an Eco Car Expo, showcasing alternative fuel cars. In addition there will be a separate Public Safety Pavilion hosted by the SORO Neighborhoods Council with many exhibits and demonstrations by “First Responders” such as LAPD and LAFD.

About the Festival

A non-profit undertaking, staffed entirely by volunteers, the SoRo Festival celebrates the broad diversity and sense of unity that exists among the some 45,000 people who live or work in the seven neighborhoods encompassed in the South Robertson community. It encourages beautification and revitalization of the SoRo corridor, where people can shop, dine, and enjoy a good quality of life, and it is committed to strengthening local educational institutions.

Boasting an attendance of between 8,000–12,000 people each year, the SoRo Festival’s proceeds support local schools and community improvement projects. The SoRo Community Festival is coordinated by the SoRo Community Foundation, Inc., with support from the South Robertson Neighborhoods Council. We would like to invite the entire Southern California community to join our event.
