The Easiest Labor Day Weekend Events in Los Angeles


I don't know about you, but the words labor day make me think of giving birth and Americans working themselves to death. While this holiday is actually a day, "in honor of working people," wouldn't it be nice to get a break from fighting crowds in the name of FOMO events? Here's a list of the easiest Labor Day weekend events in Los Angeles to do just that.

Specialty Burgers

What better way to kick off your Labor Day weekend than with a specialty burger that's only available once a month at Chi Spacca. Choose between a Classic Spacca Burger with Calabrian mint aioli and caramelized onions or a Sooner Smash with two patties, American cheese, and shaved onions ($16). Both come with fries. Pork Burgers and vegetarian items are also on the menu.

Pre-order now on Tock or go in person between 12 and 2 p.m. only on Saturday, September 4th.

Maestro of the Movies

All weekend long you can celebrate the magic of the cinema under the stars with the Maestro of the Movies concert at the Hollywood Bowl. It features the famed scores of John Williams from beloved Hollywood classics like Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, and E.T. You can even expect a cameo from the composer John Williams himself. The concert takes place September 3rd, 4th, and 5th at 8 p.m. Gates open at 6 p.m. Get your tickets here for less than $30 a person for the Friday concert.

Food Festivals

The 626 Night Market is happening all weekend long at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia. Admission is $5 pre-sale and kids under 3 are FREE. The Night Market features food stalls, crafts, games, and more. Hours are 4 p.m. to midnight. Get your tickets here.

Also for your consideration is the weekly Smorgasburg LA at Row DTLA. The street food festival-style is having a BBQ Day Celebration with fan favorites like Smoke Queen BBQ and Ugly Drum. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with one hour of free parking included.

Insider Tip: This event often has some killer lines that just may make you lose your appetite. So if you'd like to skip them, consider the new GrubHub Smorg Delivered list with restaurants like Goat Mafia, Go Go Bird, and Amazebowls on the roster. Get $5 off your order with the code SMORG2021. Just remember to tip your driver extra for doing that heavy lifting for you!
