LitFest in the Dena Saturday and Sunday 12:30-6pm May 4-5 2004

LitFest in the Dena takes place at the historic and monumental setting of Mountain View Mausoleum, located at 2300 N. Marengo Avenue in Altadena, CA. Please note: google this address, as sometimes the cemetery will come up, which is at a different address. Make sure you are going to the Marengo location!  

There are multiple spots within the Mausoleum for our panels, workshops and readings. Authors and visitors to the festival will be directed by ushers to their specific locations. 

Here is more information on the location, as well as images from the various presentations.

The Mountain View Mausoleum location has long marble corridors and stairs. We suggest wearing appropriate walking shoes and bringing a cane, walker, scooter or wheelchair if you need to. LitFest’s events are on the ground level and on the 2nd floor. Those who are unable to walk up a flight of stairs should let us know upon arrival. There is a driveway leading to the back of the building to the 2nd floor entrance where they can be let off or park. We are happy to help get you to your desired location.
