Ivy Station is a residential and retail complex at the Culver City stop of the Expo Line. For a while now they’ve featured the Big Butter Jazz Band playing a free outdoor concert from 1 to 3 PM one Saturday per month. The area is mostly grass but there are some concrete areas to dance in. There is often a free dance lesson from a respected local Swing instructor.
Bring a towel and hang out on the grass between sets!
To get free parking, you’ll need to find a roaming employee who hands out parking validations.
