Arts & Culture thrive in South Pasadenas environment of creativity and individ-ualism. Artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers and craftsmen find their "groove" in South Pasadena.
South Pasadena is home to the California Performing Arts Centre, which is the artistic producer for the Fremont Centre Theatre, a small professional theater under Equitys 99-seat plan.
The South Pasadena Public Library, founded in 1907, has been a wealth of information and programs. The Friends of the Library present Restoration Concerts featuring well-known musicians in the Library Community Room, which is the remaining section of the Neo-classic building endowed by the Carnegie Foundation. The South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce hosts a Celebration of the Arts in the fall featuring local artists and sculptors.
The City of South Pasadena offers free summer Concerts in the Park featuring everything from South Pasadenas own big band sounds of Murray Middleman and the Park Avenue Orchestra, to jazz...rockn roll.
South Pasadenas Meridian Iron Works Museum was built in 1887, one year before South Pasadena became the sixth incorporated municipality in Los Angeles County. Prior to becoming a museum, it was originally a grocery store and hotel and later served as an iron works and blacksmith shop. The museum houses artifacts that tell of the earliest history of what is the now San Gabriel Valley and South Pasadena. The museum adds to their collection by displaying private collections.
