The San Pedro
Festival of the Arts is a free family event featuring dance, music & Visual Arts/Crafts Booths this year taking place in the Courtyard of Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro. This will be its 11th year. The festival was again awarded a Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA, Festival Grant, and last year, for the first time a 2016-17 Community Investment Grant from the Port of LA. Several summer/ fall free previews lead to the main event on Sept 17, 2017
Last year the Dance component included 14 professional and 7 pre-professional companies from all over the Southland. You can see more about previous festivals at www.triartSP.com. Videos from the last 2 festivals are are:

Interested in all dance forms performed by professional companies including traditional ballet and modern as well as ethnic dance forms, fusion and hip-hop. Most of the works were traditional in their presentation last year, but several companies did interactive pieces that involved audience members, or used the park area and site itself.
Honorarium for all professional companies selected,
ranging from $200 to $300 depending on length.
Outdoor Marley covered stage approximately 32 x 28 feet. Each set 10-20 minutes. The programs open with 2-3 pre-professional groups, so we'd like to hear from schools also. The turn out on each day was several thousand over the days events. This year is more competitive as we are only running one full day. We anticipate good coverage for the event, both before and after. Early deadline is June 30, final deadline July 15.
Last year we received many more applications than there was room for, so if you were not selected before, please try again, perhaps with a
different piece. There is always great diversity in the programming. To apply:
what you would like to perform, including a digital press packet, contact info, and video link.
D- Or mail a check to LA C&D, 351 S. Virgil Ave, Los Angeles CA 90020.
Professional companies- 10 to 20', pre-professional/community under 10'. If it is a new work, include projected music. If you were in it last season, please let us know if you are interested this year, and what
