Honoring our city's rich design culture.

The LA Design Festival (June 7-10, 2018) honored our city’s rich design culture and celebrates our status as a global design capital. Our definition of design is purposely broad to ensure that our festival is reflective of LA’s diversity and talent.  Now in its 8th year, the Festival is the only citywide festival of its kind, featuring over 50 events throughout LA.

From architecture and interiors to graphic, industrial, fashion, set, costume, and experiential design, the LA Design Festival showcased the best of the local design scene as well as some exciting national and international voices.

The LA Design Festival would not be possible without the participation of the LA design community, our generous sponsors, and our amazing brain trust of designers and mentors.

The LA Design Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.



Internship Program



We've partnered with Find Your Grind to launch the LA Design Festival Internship Program.  

Find Your Grind believes that it's time to stop asking kids what they want to be when they grow up, and instead, show them the possibilities of who they can be.  


Design, etc. LIVE

The LA Design Festival featured three days of design talks at ROW DTLA.
