The SCI-Arc Art Supply Store is among the downtown LA participants and sponsors backing the fifth annual Arts District event, named for late shop owner and community activist Joel Bloom, set to take place Saturday, July 21.
Presented at 3rd Street and Traction Avenue in the Downtown Arts District, BloomfestLA will offer live indie music, local artisan wares, and good food amidst a rotating outdoor gallery of street art by renowned artists. More than 100 artists’ booths and a dozen food vendors will set up shop in the blocks around Third and Traction. New this year, the festival includes the KoolKidZone—featuring supplies provided by the SCI-Arc Supply Store—a fun area designated for families with children attending the event.
The SCI-Arc Supply Store, which serves both the student body and the downtown community, recently moved from its original Traction Ave. site to a new, double-in-size location at 955 East Third St., on the corner of Santa Fe and Third Streets.
Last year’s Bloomfest attracted 20,000 people, and this year, festival producers expect up to 25,000 people to descend on the Arts District for the free event that runs from 2-10pm.
