Venice is one of several Los Angeles neighborhoods that will be featured in the second annual Found L.A: Festival of Neighborhoods Sunday, Oct. 21.
The non-profit L.A. Commons is hosting the free festival, a citywide event to showcase culturally dynamic neighborhoods through tours provided by residents, public figures and renowned artists, who volunteer to share their unique perspective and passion for their neighborhood. The tours will take place at varying times between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
L.A. Commons works to connect people across Los Angeles’ vast metropolis through the artistic, social and cultural projects that celebrate the unique stories of L.A.’s neighborhoods.
Participants on the tours will have the chance to see the inside of sacred spaces, taste a traditional dish they’ve only heard about, or hear neighborhood histories reserved for those “in the know,”  according to L.A. Commons.
All tours are open and free to the public. Participants may sign up for more than one tour.
