Maker Walk LA

Celebrate National Manufacturing Day in style!

On Friday, October 6 from 1-4pm join MAKE IT IN LA and fellow entrepreneurs, creatives, manufacturers, local brands, and the business community for a self-guided afternoon exploring the Arts District. Guests will get behind-the-scenes factory tours and demos hosted by local businesses, plus special workshops at the Advanced Prototyping Center. Check out the tours here.

Maker Walk LA concludes with an evening V.I.P. celebration from 4-7pm at local manufacturer COMUNITY co-hosted in part by the Los Angeles Mayor's Office. The party will feature local food, beer tastings from Angel City Brewery, signature craft cocktails by Greenbar Distillery and Califia Farms, and maker mini-workshops with our local friends of MAKE IT IN LA. Other sponsors of Maker Walk LA include SmartyPants Vitamins, Durolabs, CMTC, Happily, and Sheppard Mullin.
