The 411 on the Riviera Village Summer Festival in Redondo
The 36th edition of the Riviera Village Summer Festival will be celebrated from June 28-29th, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. each day in Redondo Beach. The event brings music, food, drink, carnival rides, and an Arts & Crafts Festival to the area. This family-friendly event annually helps launch the summer season in the Beach Cities.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has come aboard to present the beer garden at the event where their brews will be featured. Car2Go is also a new Associate Sponsor of the event. Event attendees can travel to the festival hassle-free using Car2Go—it’s as simple as driving one of the company’s designated cars to your destination, dropping it off, and never worrying about it again.
All guests of the event will be admitted free of charge. The festival boasts a diverse array of food, including Greek, Asian, German, and Mexican cuisine, all located conveniently in the international food court. There will also be over 300 arts and crafts booths, and carnival rides for children.
The live music selection will feature a variety of bands including Skynyrd Reloaded, Addey Lane, Feed The Kitty, The Undercover Girls, Almost Famous, and Urban Dread, which will cover a wide range of music genres. Two stages will be set up at the festival that will host three of these professional music performances each day. There will also be a community stage, giving local music and dance groups the opportunity to perform in front of the audience.
Addey Lane, singer in the band of the same name, is a Redondo Beach
resident who was born and raised in Torrance. She was one of 15 artists accepted into the Hollywood Pop Academy, and also had a stint as a member of the Armed Forces Entertainment Family. This musical group toured internationally to bring joy and entertainment to U.S. troops across the globe. She performs with her music and production partner, the Israeli-born Oren Halmut.
The variety of activities the festival provides gives guests the opportunity to be adventurous and try new things or simply relax with a drink and listen to the music performances. This laid-back atmosphere gives the festival a comfortable, community feel in spite of the fact that it has many characteristics of a sophisticated music festival.
There will be free shuttles to the festival for the guests who park at South and
West High. The “No-Cost Bike Corral” also offers free bike valet parking for all those who ride to the festival, thereby promoting health and benefiting the environment. Who wouldn’t want to bike through the beautiful Riviera Village during the summertime, anyway?
The festival will boost the surrounding area economically, as festival attendees’ will shop at Riviera Village, and dine in the local restaurants and bars. For more information, the event hotline can be reached at (310) 531-8939 and the website can be viewed at www.rvsummerfestival.com.
