Is this a family-friendly event?
This event is available only to guests 21 & up.
Is parking included with my ticket purchase?
Reserved parking is ONLY included with purchase of Fruitanthropist tickets or Sponsorships. If you are a General Admission guest, you may also purchase a parking pass a la carte for $20 through this website to guarantee an on-site parking space. Parking always sells out, so act soon. Regardless of your ticket type, we also highly recommend taking ride share/public transit instead!
Can you tell me more about the "pre-reception"?
Yes! Fruitanthropist ticket holders, along with Sponsors and their guests, are invited to attend a pre-reception prior to the party, from 6 to 7 PM. You'll hear a few words from our founder, Rick Nahmias, take fruittastic photos, sip bubbly and sample some apps, and have the opportunity to mix and mingle in a more intimate setting before the festivities begin.
Where is the event entrance?
Whether you're on foot or in a car, please navigate to 7035 DeLongpre Avenue which is around the corner from Jim Henson Company's main LaBrea gate.
