Labor Day Weekend is known as the unofficial last weekend of summer, and if you are planning a visit to Los Angeles for the weekend, the city will be packed full of holiday weekend events. From festivals to live music and great food, here are some of the best ways to celebrate Labor Day Weekend in Los Angeles.
L.A. Fleet Week
L.A. Fleet Week is an annual Labor Day tradition celebrating our nation’s Sea Services. The weekend-long event is free to the public and includes ship tours, military displays, and equipment demonstrations. The event also has live music, airplane flyovers, and a cook-off competition between the Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guard teams.
Watch an Outdoor Movie
Watching a movie outdoors is one of the best summertime activities. On August 31, Outdoor Cinemas Club will be showing Grease at Level in Downtown L.A. and The Greatest Showman and A Quiet Place at NeueHouse in Hollywood.
Made in LA
This 2-day music, beer, art, and food festival celebrates Los Angeles’ food and art scene. This year’s headliners are L.A. pop band Saint Motel, L.A. rock band Dorothy, and indie singer Mondo Cozmo.
