Special Event

KCRW PieFest

April 28, 2024 | 12:00PM - 4:00PM

Fowler & UCLA Royce Quad

KCRW is partnering with the Fowler Museum for a day of festivities celebrating the best food of all time: pie! At the heart of the festival is a massive pie contest: hundreds of bakers compete to impress the judges—LA’s finest chefs and food writers. The event also features baking demos, a marketplace with pie slices and lunch options, a beer garden, kids activities, exhibitions at the Fowler Museum, and music sets from KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox and SiLVA. Evan Kleiman, the unofficial Pie Queen of Southern California, will preside over the festivities. This event is free and open to the public. Spend the day with us and grab a slice while you’re at it! Details here.

Fowler Art Station

Feeling inspired by the sights, smells, and tastes of PieFest? Join us at the Fowler Museum Art Station on Royce Quad (up the stairs from the Fowler) to design your dream pie. If you’re up for the challenge, create your own Heritage Pie, a category dedicated to global cuisine personal to YOU! Materials provided, open to all ages.

Masanga Marimba

1–3 pm | Fowler Amphitheater | RSVP

 Join us for an afternoon of live music and fun with Masanga Marimba in the Fowler Amphitheater. The LA-based group plays traditional and popular music from Africa and Latin America, led by seven Zimbabwean marimbas of various sizes along with vocals, drums, percussion, trumpet, and trombone. The Shona word “Masanga” describes the coming together of rivers or roads, and evokes the band’s signature blend of African, Latin, and American traditions. 

Masanga Marimba has performed at the Hollywood Bowl, Grand Performances, and Getty Center, and has opened for Neil Young, Nora Jones, Father John Misty, Los Lobos, Ziggy Marley, Pink Martini, and many others.
