Los Angeles Events: August 2016

Los Angeles Events: August 2016

Plan the rest of your summer from one of many (and not even all!) of these fun events occurring in Los Angeles this August.

Brew at LA Zoo

This Friday, August 5th you can visit the LA Zoo to not only see the animals, but to also spend an evening sampling beer from local craft and microbreweries while enjoying live music, DJs and pop-up zoo keeper talks.

Standard admission to this extremely popular event includes 5-ounce beer samples—from your choice of 50 breweries—which you can pair with pub-style grub, available for purchase. Designated driver admission includes unlimited soft drinks. Tickets for standard admission are going for $65 and designated driver admission goes for only $25.

VIP admission (available online only) lets you skip the lines with early entry to the entire route (starting at 6 p.m.) and gain access to two exclusive lounges featuring hors d’oeuvres and specialty cocktails. VIP passes are currently going for $125, online only.

Splash House

Palm Springs holds yet another music festival this August 13th and 14th, Splash House. A bit different than Coachella, Splash House brings the music to the pool. Venues include both the Saguaro and Riviera Resort & Spa, which will be connected via the Splash House shuttles. Unlike Coachella, this is a 21 and up event, so no kiddies allowed! Weekend passes start as low as $120 and go all the way up to $540 for a hotel package.

Cinespia Cemetery Screenings

Held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery every summer is one of LA’s most quintessential summer experiences, the Cinespia Cemetery Screenings.  Although we are already halfway through the summer you can still expect a long list of cult classics. Think: Speed, Poltergeist, Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, Sixteen Candles and more. Tickets are available for both the event and parking, range from $12-$16 and can be purchased online, which we suggest doing beforehand as this has become a packed event.

These are just a few of our favorite things… happening around LA for the remainder of the summer. Although fun, almost all include drinking so be sure to be responsible and either have a designated driver or book a premier transportation service like Strack Transportation.
