Topanga Days…

For some people, Topanga is usually only associated with brushfires, and unbeknownst me to until recently, “The area is known as a bohemian enclave attracting artists, musicians, and others.”

Last weekend was the annual Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest and Folk Festival, and this weekend is the annual Topanga Days Country Fair:

Old hippies, young hippies, poets, painters, musicians, movie stars, moguls, cowboys, school teachers and normal folk with normal jobs invite you to come celebrate the splendor of Topanga style. Once a year Topanga opens its arms and welcomes its neighbors to join us for this huge celebration of music, dance, performance art and the chance to unite with friends, old and new. From Bluegrass to Latin Funk to World Music and everything in between sponsored by INDIE 103 FM, this year is sure to be an incredible celebration of our unique and culturally diverse community.

Recently dubbed the Biggest Bohemian Bash in Southern California, Topanga Days Country Fair now features three stages of diverse nonstop music, belly dancing, fun and games for all ages, over 80 unique craft vendors and a variety of mouthwatering food from Cajun to hot tamales to comfort-loving sausages. Since 1973, Topanga Days is a three-day festival Fundraiser for the Topanga Community Housein the heart of Topanga State Park.

The festival runs through Monday and tickets are $15 (with tickets for children 6-12 and seniors $7 and children five years and younger getting free admission).

One thought on “Topanga Days…”

  1. “…unbeknownst me to”? Heh.

    If you’ve ever taken the drive down Topanga from the Valley to Santa Monica, you’d definitely know there is more to Topanga than brush fires.
