Returning to downtown's The Reef, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy programming that includes a demonstration on urban chicken keeping; a workshop the highlights making your own bitters at home; and learning brewing techniques from the city's finest baristas. This year's Artisanal LA also features over 60 new vendors including artisan woodworker Amanda McAuley, ceramics by MEKU Designs, chef-curated gift baskets from The FareTrade, Bobbi and Bambi's Gourmet Dog Bakery and more joining returning favorites such as Crown Bloom Co. and Plantfolk, providing guests the chance to shop for unique textiles, gifts, furnishings and kitchen wares.

Additionally, Artisanal LA offers sampling and shopping from a wide spectrum of culinary mavens dedicated to creating the best frozen treats, chocolate confections, baked good, and more. Full meals are also available at the cafe and Patio Truck Stop with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free selections ensuring the event is equally as satisfying for those with dietary restrictions and allergies.
