Mission Statement

Abbot Kinney Festival Association is a 501(c)(3), grant making organization, that supports community-based organizations in Venice with an emphasis on youth, community, and the arts. Our biggest fundraiser of the year, Abbot Kinney Festival, draws crowds of over 100,000 to the most iconic street in Venice. We believe that we can have fun, bring our community together and give back at the same time. In fact that's exactly the spirit of the community we love so much and are committed to supporting.

Description

The Abbot Kinney Festival spans world-famous Abbot Kinney Boulevard, dubbed the coolest block in America by GQ Magazine. The mile-long street’s eclectic boutiques and artisan eateries infuse the festival with local Venice flavor. Occurring each year on the last Sunday in September, this highly anticipated summertime tradition is 35 years strong.

Funded by festival proceeds, the AKFA Community Grants Program awards funding to selected Venice-based nonprofit organizations that offer services and programs aimed at youth and families. Applications are accepted each year preceding the festival and presented at the festival in September. Since 1984, well over $300,000 in festival proceeds have been invested into the community of Venice.

We thank everyone who supports, volunteers, shops and visits the Abbot Kinney Festival, for it is the sole revenue source for our community grant program.
