Taste of Soul drew a record breaking 300,000 people to Crenshaw Blvd. to partake in one of the biggest festivals in Los Angeles.

The 7th annual ‘Taste of Soul’ even further established itself as the biggest and best of all Los Angeles festivals in 2012. The annual family event drew an estimated 300,000 along Crenshaw Blvd. Taste of Soul soared through popular media with an impressive voter registration drive and the inaugural StarQuest talent competition. The event trended on Twitter and escalated on Facebook with more than 60,000, serving as a powerful economic engine among African American small businesses and providing citizens with much valued transportation tips from Metro.

Created by Danny Bakewell Sr., TOS is a family-oriented event for the community to come together, celebrate and partake in all the aspects that make our community great. For the past 7 years now, TOS has shown itself to be one the largest events of its kind and it maintains peace and order.
