A Guide to Guides: The Sunset Junction Street Festival
Alrighty, it's Sunset Junction weekend. Now in its 30th year, the two-day festival that puts Silver Lake on the map will attract throngs of Angelenos with its five music stages, food, vendors and, of course, excellent hipster gawking. The festival website provides a lot of the needed information, including directions and line-up.
What's not on the website is parking information, $10 will get you a spot at L.A. Community College (off Vermont) and a free shuttle ride, according to the festival spokesperson. Additionally, many use up street parking, but neighbors tend to frown on that.
We recommend using public transit if that's a viable option. The Metro Red Line has stops at Vermont/Santa Monica and Vermont/Sunset, which are a 10 to 15 minute walk from the festival. Various buses also serve the area, but do take note of route changes because the festival shuts down Sunset Boulevard.
