Holiday Shopping Edition
Found LA is our FREE, annual citywide event that showcases culturally dynamic neighborhoods through the eyes of residents, public figures, and renowned artists, who volunteer to share their unique perspectives and passion for their neighborhood. Found LA is open to anyone who wants to organize a tour of their neighborhood, and anyone who wants to learn more about the vast expanse that is Los Angeles.
Each year, generally on the third weekend in October, the program explores a different theme, introducing Angelenos to their city -- L.A. River, Great Streets, Cultural Treasures of the Promise Zone -- highlighting the people, events, and places that make the heart of L.A. so culturally dynamic. As part of Found LA, culture seekers explore historic boulevards, sample delicious foods in unknown corridors, and hear little-known stories, among many other adventures in communities all around the city.

Virtual via Zoom
Some of you may be missing Found LA this year. Well, we’ve got some great news for you. 2020’s virtual edition will showcase local legacy businesses as part of a Healing Holiday Marketplace.
You will have the same opportunities to explore some of L.A.’s neighborhoods but through an online platform that will allow you to explore neighborhood destinations and the unique offerings to be found there. This focus is designed for our times, recognizing the particularly challenging impacts of the global pandemic on community-based retailers. We wanted to counter some of these difficulties, which on top of gentrification activity, have made it hard for small businesses to survive. There is a special emphasis on Black Businesses and, three of our legacy neighborhoods:
Explore Leimert Park businesses that reflect the richness of Black heritage
Discover hidden gems in MacArthur Park and connect to the immigrant experience
Uncover small retailers in Expo Park that tell the real story of this historic neighborhood
