In celebration of Hello Kitty’s 45th Anniversary, Sanrio invites you on a special adventure with HELLO KITTY FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD: a fully immersive, multi-sensory, walk-through experience that takes you around the globe with Hello Kitty and her friends. Explore the 10,000 square foot pop-up as you transport into Hello Kitty’s supercute world and embark on a journey to London, Paris, New York, Honolulu and Tokyo, all from DTLA!
Aside from shopping and supporting local designers and small biz owners, guests all get free treats including: a tote bag, ice cream from the Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream truck, a shake from our friends at Shake Shack, a portrait + print at our photo station, loads of free drinks, and lots more! *tickets will also be available at the door.
Our mission is to provide opportunities that help entrepreneurs, designers and artists grow and increase success - helping to take their businesses to the next level. All while helping the public discover and support local small businesses, creativity and take part in community. Our very first market, #UniqueLA, started in December of 2008 and instantly became the largest indoor 'buy local' shopping event in the country. Every year close to 50k attendees come to discover independent designers/artists and buy local at our markets (an estimated $1 million is spent at each two-day show). We hold three major shopping events in LA per year, plus smaller educational and retail experiences. In 2018 we will produce markets in other cities across America including Austin, Boston, Seattle, DC, Denver, Minneapolis, and Phoenix.
