Grand Central Market’s 100th Birthday Celebration & Cake Cutting

Update: please note the changed time for this event – Mayor Eric Garcetti will be cutting the Centennial cake at 10:30am (formerly listed as 9:30am).

You are cordially invited to join us at Grand Central Market to celebrate the Centennial of this Los Angeles institution, which also happens to be the home of our free monthly cultural lecture and walking tour series, the LAVA Sunday Salon.

The festivities last all day and into the night (see this link for details), and include live music from Janet Klein and the Parlor Boys, free rides on Angels Flight, a costume contest, cookbook release party and much more.

You’re welcome to visit Grand Central Market on Centennial Day as your schedule allows, but here at LAVA, we like cake. So please join us at 9:30 a.m. for the unveiling of a massive, 100-layer birthday cake created by Valerie Confections. There will be free slices for everyone as we toast the next century of L.A.’s iconic breadbasket. Long may she serve.

If you enjoy our free LAVA events, please consider putting something in our tip jar.
