Summer is Our Specialty

Like the rest of California, Torrance is officially open for business as of June 15. Great food, interesting museums, peaceful beaches and excellent lodging options are open. Summer is here, and there are a ton of fun things to do in Torrance. Here’s a taste of what Torrance has to offer. 

LIVE MUSIC

TOCA
There’s nothing quite like live music and it’s back in Torrance at the wide open, outdoor Torrance Cultural Arts Center (TOCA). Head there on Friday, June 19 to catch The Fenians playing a mix of Celtic/Irish music and good ol’ rock n’ roll.  

You can also catch the LA Stars of Funk at the TOCA on Saturday, July 3. They feature an all-star lineup of amazingly talented musicians who have performed alongside Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Prince and Earth Wind & Fire.  

MOTLEY CRUE AND DEF LEOPARD
If you’re a heavy metal fan, then you won’t want to miss Motley Crue and Def Leppard playing at SoFi Stadium on Saturday, Sept 4th. They’re only playing one night, and you can purchase tickets now at TicketMaster.  

BEACH LIFE FESTIVAL
This local music festival is a 3-day event running from Friday, Sept. 10 through Sunday, Sept. 12. The Beach Life Festival celebrates music, art and everything you love about SoCal beach life culture. This year’s lineup includes Janes Addiction, Counting Crows, Cage the Elephant, Ziggy & Stephen Marley (featuring Bob Marley’s music) and more. 

 

Sports 

USA RUGBY TEAM
Watch the USA Men’s and Women’s Rugby Sevens teams compete at the “Quest for Gold Sevens” just before the Tokyo Olympics this summer. They’ll be playing against the National Olympic Teams from Argentina, Samoa, Japan, Korea and Kenya in this Olympic preparatory event at the Dignity Health Sports Park in nearby Carson.   

boxing

BOXING
There are a number of sporting events this summer at nearby venues like Dignity Health Sports Park – make sure to catch a special boxing match featuring Colbert vs Gamboa Match live on Saturday, July 3 at 4:00pm. Undefeated rising star Chris Colbert (15-0-0, 6 KOs) will defend his WBA Super Featherweight Interim Title against three-division world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-4-0, 18 KOs) in a headlining crossroads bout. 

FOOTBALL
Our local SoFi Stadium now hosts the NFL teams, the Rams and the Chargers, so keep an eye out for game tickets as the football season kicks off this year. And make sure to reserve your 2022 Super Bowl 56 tickets early 

 

HOLIDAYS 

TORRANCE 4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS SHOW
A treat every Independence Day, the City of Torrance will host their annual 4th of July Fireworks Show on Sunday, July 4 at 9pm at the Torrance Civic Center. If you can’t watch it in person, you can watch the show live on TorranceCitiCABLE (Spectrum 3, Frontier FiOS 31). 

 

ART  

TORRANCE ART MUSEUM – ULTRA!
Experience an adventurous new community-based public art exhibition at the Torrance Art Museum – ULTRA! This outdoor exhibition will feature more than 20 artworks from some of the region’s most significant and exciting contemporary artists. Sculpture, installation, video projection, and interactive experiences are just some of the treasures you’ll find in various parks, storefronts, schools and government buildings. It’s free and a special route map will be available as a handout or online. 

All of our local museums are open as well including the Western Museum of Flight, Torrance Art Museum and Torrance Cultural Arts Center. Find out more about their exhibits here

  

FOOD 

BACON COOKING CLASS
Join Head Chef Shafer at The Depot Restaurant for their September Cooking Class: Bacon, Bacon, Bacon. The class celebrates all things bacon and is happening on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at noon. It lasts about two hours and costs $45 a person. 

 

You can see that there really is a lot of fun things to do in Torrance. Keep an eye out for more events by checking out the events calendar 

Many Torrance hotels are offering special offers this season too. Start planning your trip today!
