First Fridays in Bixby Knolls - Sept 2014

Event Type: Open to All - Members & Public

Starting Sept. 5th, TALB will now be participating in First Fridays in Bixby Knolls!

On the first Friday of every month, the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association organizes the storefronts along Atlantic Avenue from Bixby Road to San Antonio Drive to showcase local artists and musicians. Community groups also set up information tables along the sidewalks. Over the past several years, the event has grown as it attracts thousands of people to our area and activating many of the businesses along this corridor.

TALB will now activate our little corner of the corridor by providing a space for artists, musicians, performers, and community groups to engage with each other.

On Sept. 5th, TALB is partnering with the Children's Theatre of Long Beach who will provide cabaret style music, dancing, and acting for everyone.

We are also partnering with Catalyst Network of Communities who will set up a Pop-Up Free Store with two areas - a general community exchange area and a school supplies area for teachers. Everyone is encouraged to bring items in good condition (ie. clothes, dishwares, toys, school supplies, children's books, etc.) to donate to the Free Store. Everyone can browse the general area and take anything of interest. Teachers can browse the school supplies area and take items to use for their classroom.

TALB is also welcoming indie singer/songwriter Jake Woodruff and musician Erik Perez to play on our street corner for First Fridays attendees. 

Everyone is welcome to come by and connect with TALB! Our location is 4362 Atlantic Avenue (cross street Claiborne) across the street and half a block from The Art Expo building.
