From homegrown festivals like FYF, CicLAvia and LA Pride to blockbuster bashes like Coachella, we’ve rounded up our favorite events throughout the year. Whether you’re looking for something to do today, this weekend or in the coming months, look no further than our Los Angeles events calendar for 2018.

South Africa’s fascinating diversity will be at your fingertips with pop-up experiences showcasing the country’s beautiful destinations of Cape Town and Johannesburg—alongside a very cool little taster of what it’s like to go on an authentic South African wildlife safari (hint: it’s amazing). But don’t pack your bags just yet… one lucky winner will walk away with a set of luxury luggage. // var exampleCallback = function() { console.log('Order complete!'); }; window.EBWidgets.createWidget({ // Required widgetType: 'checkout', eventId: '49708056134', iframeContainerId: 'eventbrite-widget-container-49708056134', // Optional iframeContainerHeight: 425, // Widget height in pixels.
