About Echo Park Rising was created last year by the Echo Park community as a pop-up impromptu street fair after the 3-decade-old Sunset Junction was shuttered by city officials. The result was a new kind of celebration, one that participants said better mirrored the spirit of the community by creating an open environment for the enjoyment of live music, independent art, and good times.
