Event Location

Located at the southern point of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, between Manhattan Beach and Long Beach, San Pedro is home to the busiest port in the country: the Port of Los Angeles. Also known as America’s Port, this gateway is much more than a transportation hub. It is one of the most historic and picturesque regions in Los Angeles. San Pedro is a rare balance of small-town charm, cultural attractions, and family friendly activities in the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Come enjoy a slower pace of life that is good for the soul.
