Mr. Events.

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to express our love for the special people — and animals — in our lives. Just like humans, the animals at Farm Sanctuary express many forms of love, including romantic, platonic, and familial, with one another — and they share love with their human friends too.

Mr. Events.

Every fall, thousands of compassionate people gather to raise funds and change hearts for farm animals through the Walk for Farm Animals, a series of non-competitive walking events held each year in cities across the United States and Canada. Others participate virtually through our “Sleep In for Farm Animals.” Walkers raise vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s life-saving work and promote kindness toward animals. The Walk for Farm Animals is a positive way to speak out on behalf of animals who cannot speak for themselves and make a real difference in their lives.

The 2013 Walk for Farm Animals was a huge success! Thanks to the support and amazing dedication of more than 4,800 walkers across 38 events, Farm Sanctuary raised $438,000 for farm animals. Musical entertainment provided by Nina and RandaFatMagic, and DJ Nametag.

The Walk for Farm Animals raises vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s lifesaving work and brings together thousands of people to change hearts and minds about farm animals. Will you join Los Angeles to support compassion for all?

When you visit Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres shelter, you’ll know right away that it is a special place. Their sanctuaries are home to rescued cows, pigs, turkeys, and other farm animals — and each has a special story. Their stories of struggle and survival, against all odds, give the public insight into the realities farm animals face in the modern factory farming industry, but also introduce us to inspiring individuals through their heartwarming tales. 

Screen Shot 2013-09-01 at 4.21.52 PM

Animals who began their lives abused and neglected now spend their days digging in the dirt, basking in the sun, and napping in the straw. Each animal is given the freedom and attention needed not only to recover but to thrive.

The Sunset Strip Market is a weekly certified farmers’ market committed to enhancing the community by providing fresh, California-grown produce and artisan goods. The goal of the Market is to create a space that encourages nearby residents, employees, farmers, and visitors to interact with each other. The Sunset Strip Market emerged from a shared vision between business owners and residents to create a community-based event that would engage residents as well as showcase The Sunset Strip.

The Sunset Strip Market is happy to provide guests with unique food experiences. From the carefully curated certified farmers’ market to cooking demos, chef specials, and wine tastings, the market will engage your senses. The market hosts a wine and beer garden/pairing area with rotating options. The garden focuses on sustainable, organic California wineries and local breweries. Guests ages 21 and older may enjoy the garden.

The Sunset Strip Market was developed by a committee of dedicated business owners and residents. Members of the committee include Nick Mathers (owner, the Eveleigh), David Vialli (general manager, The Standard, Hollywood), Bruce Silberman (owner, Allied Parking) and Nic Adler (owner, The Roxy Theatre). Diana Rodgers, a respected leader in community farmers’ markets, curated the certified farmers and vendors. Steve Portigiani created the site map and plan.

The community spirit of the market also extends to the entertainment stage, which showcases local artists and features live music performances each week.

The Sunset Strip Market is happy to provide an enhanced farm-to-table dining experience within the outdoor space. Throughout the year, the market partners with various California wineries and breweries to showcase their product, which will be paired with market fresh food offerings. Guests ages 21 and older may enjoy tastings or pair their drink with a full meal or other fare available at the market.

If you don’t want to carry your produce with you while you shop or enjoy dinner at one of The Sunset Strip’s many establishments, then let them hold them for you.
