Whether you have recently relocated or are a long time resident of the place you call home, Welcome to the City events can help you recapture your Bruin roots and spirit. Join fellow alumni for adventure and fun. Enjoy the ease of discovering your city in the company of new friends with a shared UCLA history.

Round up the family, grab a hat to shade the sun and join the UCLA Black Alumni Association for good eats and entertainment at the 10th Annual Taste of Soul Family Festival where the motto is “Family, Food, Fun and Respect.” This Welcome to the City is destined to feel like an extended family reunion as you taste your way down the boulevard in the company of fellow Bruins and hundreds of thousands of inter-generational, multi-ethnic, peaceful people from all around Los Angeles. Celebrate the spirit of acceptance and connection that makes this one of the greatest cities in the nation. Groove to the music, see the wares of local artists and discover the restaurants, businesses and organizations that support an inclusive community vision.

Meet at the UCLA Booth at 2 p.m. for the UCLA alumni, friends and family group photo.
