About This Activity


On Saturday, October 24, 2015 more than 5,000 folks of all ages will gather for a morning-long festival celebrating the worth of every Angeleno and the work of Homeboy Industries.

The Festival includes a 5K Run, an art exhibition and sale featuring 50+ renowned and emerging artists in a variety of media, activities for children, performances by eclectic musical artists, a vendor village selling handicrafts and artisan treats, and the first ever Homegirl Cafe Football Field Lunch (imagine tacos with 1,000 of your closest friends).

Each year over 10,000 formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women from across Southern California come through Homeboy Industries' doors in an effort to make a positive change. They are welcomed into a community of mutuality, kinship and respect. And they receive a wide variety of services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management and parenting classes so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community - knowing they count. Join us as a runner or walker, donor or sponsor, volunteer or cheerleader.

Every Angeleno Counts.
