Artists and businesses have been working hard to get ready for the Fall Arts Crawl! Come on out to see what they've been planning - this popular “Neighborhood Night-on-the-Town” is Saturday, October 21, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and produced by SPACE, this free event offers gallery openings, art activities, live music, open houses, food and drink specials, and sales throughout the business district. Mission Street, and adjacent blocks. South Pasadena will be abuzz with festivities for the event.
Fall themed family activities include “Urban Scarecrows”, a free interactive art activity at the South Pasadena City Hall courtyard, where event-goers can create their own mini-scarecrows. At Dual Crossroads you can sign up for a Mommy and Me Halloween craft class, The Hot Box offers pumpkin carving, The Munch Company will do face painting and an art project, and Retreat will have a “live” scarecrow.
Be sure to stroll by the Artisans’ Corner at the corner of Mission and Meridian, near the GoldLine South Pasadena station, to shop for gifts and unique items including art, pillows, accessories, jewelry and more.
Local businesses get into the groove with performances by Mission Street Music Club, Kelly Kidd, Bill Burnett, Jackson Mankowski, and more. The South Pasadena Music Center and Conservatory hosts a live music marathon while the Pascale Institute will have an upright piano on the sidewalk and performances during the whole event.
Videotheque presents an outdoor screening of a Halloween-themed movie while several venues, including the South Pasadena Library, SPARC, Sugar Mynt Gallery, the Laurie Hendricks Gallery, and Old Focals, present art shows by local artists. Joining the fall fun, restaurants will be offering food and drink specials, and food trucks deliver several on- the-go eating options.
To honor the South Pasadena family of Aramazd (Piqui) Andressian Jr., Rosebuds and Rosestuds and SPACE will donate a portion of its proceeds toward memorials for the young boy who was killed last spring.
Patrons can enjoy FREE parking in the Mission-Meridian parking garage (just north of Mission Street on Meridian Avenu) and walk to the more than 25 participating shops and boutiques. The Metro Gold Line South Pasadena Station will put you right in the heart of the event.
The South Pasadena Preservation Foundations and the D.U.D.E.S. present "Oktoberfest", a beer garden fundraiser at the South Pasadena Historical Museum. For an entrance fee, you can eat, drink and be merry while supporting local non-profits.
The quarterly Arts Crawls are presented by the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, and produced by SPACE, to provide a showcase for artists and musicians and to highlight the city’s unique business district.
