Abbot Kinney Festival did not live up to its expectations

The Abbot Kinney Festival took over the street this past Sunday in Venice.

The vendors offered different styles from food to painting and hand-made jewelry.

Beyond Baroque held the spoken word stage this year. The Abbot Kinney Festival also held three small stages where locals artists performed.

It was a hot day, but many still gathered to walk on the street. The bar called “The Brig” offered a beer garden outside to help raise money for the Venice community.

Abbot Kinney and their artisanal stores offer a unique vibe of Venice, but this year the festival was focused more on vendors and food than the music.
