OUR STORY & MISSION-
The SAN PEDRO ♥ FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS (formerly the SP TriArt Festival) is a free family event featuring dance, music, & crafts in the Ports O'Call Village on the waterfront, this year on September 19-20, 2015. This will be its 9th year, and the 5th at this beautiful outside location. Four years ago, the TriArt Festival moved to Ports O' Call Village helping to draw in thousands of new spectators, performers, and vendors to showcase San Pedro as a center for art. Original founder, Joe Caccavalla, envisioned the dance, music, and visual arts/ crafts as the heart of the festival to foster art appreciation. After his death in 2012, the producers reformed as SAN PEDRO ♥ TRI ART Festival and since then our audience attendance has multiplied by the thousands along with increased recognition. It has become best known for its dance performances, also gaining increased recognition each year for its music. Our company, Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers (LA C&D), had previously been the non-profit fiscal receiver for the festival, and we applied for and received a festival grant again from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA.
Funds also come from Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe, and for the 3rd time we received a Music in Public Places grant from the LA County Arts Commission. In-kind donations are again promised from Joe Buscaino Los Angeles City District's office of Jacob Haik, local district director. Many businesses contributed items including Alvas for the dance flooring and preview location, Peoples Place, and Jayme Wilson for help with food sales and electricity. Many of you have contributed help with our marketing, and gifts for the hourly free drawings! Thanks to our past and present funders and donors, the SAN PEDRO ♥ FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS is able to thrive another year and bring the vibrant San Pedro community quality art performances and unforgettable sites and sounds.
