BOOKS: LitFest Pasadena 2.0 has arrived. The day-long event features over 80 authors, storytellers and performers from the Arroyo region (and Southern California, generally). There's something for everyone, whether you're into surf culture, local history or young adult literature. Some highlighted guests include Kate Durbin, Jonathan Gold and the Bob Baker Marionette Theater. The event is free and will take place at Pasadena’s Central Park from 10 am until 5 pm. For more information, visit the event's website.

DANCE: If you haven't caught it yet, the Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre is rolling through town in a roving dance trailer called the Oasis Dance Trailer. Tonight the performance "At The Oasis" heads to East Los Angeles. There will be performances at 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm at the East LA Civic Center at 4800 E. 3rd Street. For tickets, head to the Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre website.

CRAFT: Today and tomorrow the Echo Park Craft Fair is happening. This is a chance to check out handcrafted items from locals. It takes place at 821 East 3rd Street (which, yes, is in downtown not Echo Park) from noon until 7 pm. For more information about vendors, visit the fair's website.
