• The San Pedro ♥ Festival of the Arts is a free family event, in the past featuring Dance, Music & Visual Arts/Crafts Booths. This year, our 15th, we approach it in a new way due to the dimensions of the recent Pandemic. The festival was again awarded a Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles Festival Grant + a grant to reintroduce the festival to the community. This includes our 6-film Division that is currently running. Images from those companies include
