Obama Blvd Naming Ceremony & Street Festival
May 4, 2019 • 12:00 pm PDT
Angelenos from all over our expansive city (and beyond) can come together in celebration of the official unveiling of Obama Boulevard. A 3 1/2 mile stretch of Rodeo Road (see image) – not to be confused with Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills – will be renamed in honor of the 44th president of the United States, joining neighboring presidential boulevards Washington, Adams and Jefferson. The all day festival of music, vendors and foods trucks will culminate with the 5 pm unveiling lead by civic leaders including LA City Council President Herb Wesson, LA Urban League President Michael Lawson, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and more.
