If you are vegetarian and love hip hop, or just a curious carnivore, the Los Angeles Tofu Festival will keep you in high spirits. The festival is going down Saturday and Sunday, but Saturday night’s live performances will surely draw the main crowd.

Celebrity chefs will be in line all day and into the evening, with live performances throughout the day. If you’re a hip hop head, then there will be a special treat. Not only will Ill Again and The Gaslamp Killer be doing their thing, but Blackalicious will even be taking stage.

The Tofu Festival Grounds are located at 237 S. San Pedro Street in Los Angeles. Check out for more information and full chef and entertainment listing.
