DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Guacamole-inspired beer and inventive takes on fried chicken are on the roster for a pair of recently announced Downtown Los Angeles festivals.

On Aug. 24 from 1-7 p.m., Angel City Brewery will pay homage to the avocado. The brewery at 216 S. Alameda St. will serve a guacamole-inspired beer called Avocado Ale. Food trucks will be on hand including Octopops, which makes avocado popsicles.

There will also be a guacamole contest and live music.

Coming a month later to the Arts District is a fried chicken celebration complete with high-end offerings prepared by some well-known chefs.

The Food GPS Fried Chicken Festival will take place Sept. 15 from 4-7 p.m. at Lot 613 in the Arts District. Those frying up birds will include Downtown chefs Susan Feniger of Border Grill, Bryant Ng of Spice Table and Ricardo Zarate of Mo-Chica.

The event will offer beer from Firestone Walker Brewing Co., ice cream from McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams and desserts from Sugarbloom Bakery.

Additional Angel City Brewery information is at angelcitybrewery.com or (213) 622-1261. Additional Fried Chick Festival information is at foodgpsfriedchicken.nightout.com.
