Los Angeles January 2022 Events

Experience "Winter" in LA!

Average temperature low and high: 68° - 49°
If you live up north or somewhere unpleasant during the winter months, Los Angeles is the perfect place to visit to get away. With temperatures remaining rather mild to warm year-round, Los Angeles has no true-winter months. However, there are still opportunities in January to experience some winter magic at Winter Fest. Those wanting to avoid winter altogether can enjoy outdoor events as well as opportunities to eat at some of the city's best restaurants at discounted prices during Restaurant Week. Some annual events may change or be different due to COVID-19 this year, we will release any new information from organizers in the coming weeks.

January Event Calendar

Hamilton: An American Musical

This year, delve into the story of one of our founding fathers in a unique and modern way. Hamilton is as educational as it is entertaining, and it is not a show you want to miss. In addition to traditional show tunes, the play incorporates genres not often seen on a Broadway stage—including rap, R&B, and hip-hop. Ready for the best history lesson of your life? Reserve your seats for this revolutionary show here.
