August may signal summer’s home stretch, but that doesn’t mean the fun needs to end. Grab an ice cream cone or dive into a pool party while it’s still warm—ah, who are we kidding, it’s always perfectly pleasant in Los Angeles. Keep sipping those summer cocktails, head to one of the county’s best beaches and follow our August events calendar for the best festivals and activities in L.A. this month.

Don’t expect Insta-ready scenes in this food-inspired art exhibition. Instead, “Offal”—as in, yes, butchered entrails—tackles some of the most taboo topics related to food, with works from 44 L.A. artists that center around the themes of labor, discard and waste, transcultural idions, cultural retention and shame, and the abject.

It has a new name, a new schedule and refocused curation, but the former Twilight Concert Series is returning to the Santa Monica Pier. The free concert series brings indie favorites and up-and-comers to the Pier in the late summer.
