Welcome Back!
Biggest Bubblegum Bubble contest is one of many games.
After two years of quiet streets and an empty stage on Memorial Day Weekend, Topanga Days will return to the Topanga Community Center May 29th and 30th. Produced by the Topanga Community Center (TCC), the event will be outdoors only with one main stage featuring local Los Angeles and Topanga bands, games, food trucks, vendors and a reduced crowd capacity.
The ballfield stage will be the main attraction, hosting the following bands for the Topanga Days 2022 Lineup: Boogaloo Assassins; Cecilia Noël; Hallelujah Boy; Hello Forever; Honeybee; Próxima Parada; Robin Moxey & Eric Lynn and Friends; Sam Small; Surge; and Venice.
The Horseshoe tournament will be held the afternoon of Sunday, May 29.

A showcase of talent from TCC classes and programs and, of course, the beloved ballfield games are scheduled between sets! For the complete schedule, check topangadays.com.

Topanga Days is the largest annual fundraiser for the TCC, a volunteer-managed, non-profit community center that is open to the public.

“We know this is something the Topanga community wants and needs, and we’re working hard to make it a reality in a responsible way,” says TCC President Kelly Rockwell. “We’re really trying to tailor this event for our neighbors, especially the TCC supporters and members who have helped see us through what could have been a devastating two years. As an independently managed community center, that support was vital.”

“The TCC has been fortunate to secure Topanga Days sponsorships. adds, “We are grateful to everyone for helping to sponsor our fundraiser this year, as this event has become very expensive to host,” said Nonie Shore, TCC’s VP in charge of Events & Fundraising. “This year, the Anthony & Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation, Abacus Wealth Partners, Adrian Wright and Jordan Wright of the Wright Way Team at Compass, Mananalu Water, and Snyder Sutton Real Estate have led the way as our ‘Backbone Trail’ sponsors. Every sponsorship makes a difference,” she added. Sponsorship information can be found online at: https://topangadays.topangacommunitycenter.org/sponsors/become-a-sponsor/.

Thanks to local sponsorship, the Topanga Days Parade will be ready to roll at 8:30 a.m. on Memorial Day.

Performances will be on the ball field stage. The Corral Stage is dark and there will be no Cowboy Breakfast on Sunday, May 29.
