Prohibition on Live Audiences for Street Performers

October 12, 2020 10:28 AM

To ensure compliance with Los Angeles County social distancing requirements and the County’s prohibition on live audiences for street performers, the City of Santa Monica’s latest emergency supplement suspends the issuance of permits for street performers at the Pier, Third Street Promenade, and Transit Mall until December 31, 2020. 

As a result, street performers will not be allowed in those spaces during their most crowded times, after 12 p.m. Monday through Friday and on weekends and holidays. During other times, the order prohibits street performers in those spaces from encouraging persons to gather to observe the performance and requires performers to comply with all County social distancing requirements, including wearing face coverings. 

Other provisions in the Twenty-Seventh Supplement include:
