The 12th annual Festival For All Skid Row Artists
will be held on October 16, 2021 in Gladys park.
The Festival For All Skid Row Artists is a festival of music, theater, spoken word performances and visual art with plenty of music, showcasing the diverse range of talents among Skid Row residents. It usually takes place in Gladys Park (corner of 6th Street and Gladys Avenue). Initiated by Los Angeles Poverty Department in 2010, with support from United Coalition East Prevention Network (UCEPP) and Studio 526, the festival has become one of the most anticipated grassroots cultural events in Skid Row where typically over 100 Skid Row Artists perform and display their artwork to enthusiastic audiences. LAPD’s Festival for All Skid Row Artists gives audiences a chance to hear what you usually don’t hear about Skid Row: that it is a community rich with talent!
