In the 1930s, Classics such as John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath was written, and young people flocked to hear and dance to the big bands of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, and Tommy Dorsey. The Empire State Building was built and a young actress named Shirley Temple stole America’s heart. Explore and immerse yourself in the wondrous and classic moments of the 1930s – its art and culture, politics, technological inventions, leisure past times and more – through hands-on activities, displays, and live performances at Rancho Los Cerritos as the museum hosts its annual Spring Festival, "Sights and Sounds of the ‘30s".

People of all ages will have the opportunity to learn and experience life in the 1930s by meeting "Will Rogers," exploring "modern" inventions of the 1930s, playing miniature golf, learning to swing dance, and much more! They can listen to stories and songs of the Dust Bowl era, enjoy a hilarious radio show by "The RLC Players," and dance to big band music by Bobby Brent Connection. Stop by as we take you back to amazing 1930s era!
