Abbot Kinney Merchants Committee

The Abbot Kinney Merchants Committee is comprised of community stakeholders that have businesses along Abbot Kinney Blvd. The group was formed to address issues and concerns that are unique to this mile-long strip of the latest in fashion, art, and food. Topics include security, parking, filming and food trucks. Committee members also work to promote the image of what GQ Magazine defines as the, “coolest block in America.” Additionally, they promote businesses through producing and supporting seasonal and ongoing events such First Fridays, Winter Snow Day, the Holiday Stroll, and the Abbot Kinney Festival. A steering team meets monthly and there are quarterly meetings and mixers for the businesses on the street.
