|Mission||Taste of Soul L.A. Family Festival is about our community coming together to celebrate our businesses, our entertainment, our talent and most importantly, each other.|
Dubbed Los Angeles’ largest street festival, The Taste of Soul Family Festival takes place annually in October and features a taste of all things “soulful” including food from local restaurants, live entertainment, displays from local artists, and exhibits from local businesses and organizations.
Founded by Danny Bakewell Sr., now in its 10th year, the Taste of Soul is presented by the Los Angeles Sentinel Newspaper and benefiting the South L.A. non-profit organizations Mothers in Action and the Brotherhood Crusade, the Taste of Soul Los Angeles is a free family-friendly event hosted in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, Radio Free 102.3 KJLH, and 94.7 The Wave. The Taste of Soul takes place in the 8th and 10th council districts represented by Councilmembers Bernard Parks Sr. and Herb Wesson Jr.
The Taste of Soul is still free and takes place on Crenshaw Boulevard between Stocker Boulevard and Rodeo Road in Los Angeles and attracts over 350,000 attendees.
