Be a Part of LA FOOD BOWL: Coming in May 2017

May 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 31, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The Los Angeles Times has a major new food festival in May 2017. FOOD BOWL will celebrate L.A.’s dynamic and influential food scene while promoting awareness about food waste and hunger.

Los Angeles Times FOOD BOWL will host hundreds of events throughout the city, showcasing our culinary diversity and California’s produce through a unique and vibrant festival program.

Special international guest chefs include: Massimo Bottura (Italy), Fergus Henderson (UK), Magnus Nilsson (Sweden) and Rosio Sanchez (Denmark).


We invite Los Angeles’ leading restaurants, chefs, bars, cafes, charities, hotels and markets to participate by holding a special event or experience.

Host an event at your own venue or partner with another.

Your event will be listed online at and in the FOOD BOWL program that will be distributed on Sunday, April 9, 2017, in the Los Angeles Times and throughout Los Angeles.

You’ll benefit from a $5-million marketing and public relations campaign across the Los Angeles Times network, social media and our partners.

The fee to submit your event for listing in the official program and website ranges from $95 to $295.

Our aim is to do things differently. And we want you to do the same.

Need some help or have more questions? Email our team at and we will call you to discuss.



Night Market will be a bustling outdoor street food market held over five consecutive nights in Grand Park, May 10-14, and will feature up to 50 food booths from L.A.’s restaurants, food trucks and bars with seating areas, live entertainment and DJs.

FOOD BOWL will raise funds for selected charities through direct donations, awareness campaigns and the support of third-party charity initiatives. Official charity partners will be announced as part of the festival program to be published on April 9, 2017. It is also expected that many independent events within the program will support individual charities associated with specific initiatives.

We welcome your proposals for charity initiatives, with a particular focus on food-related causes such as fighting food waste, homelessness, hunger, nutrition and the support of local communities.

Please contact for further inquiries.
