On Saturday September 27, the street’s semi-annual Retro Ramble will become a “Sidewalk Sale with Wagging Tails,” welcoming animal friends of all kinds with special pet-themed vendors, services and events, including:
Pet-perfect Goodies and Gifts for sale;

- Free Ice Cream from Long Beach’s own Ice Cream Ian;
- Retro Bottled Soda Pop for sale from the Tiki Monster Side Show Soda truck;
- Event T-shirts made-to-order for $7 from Red Eye Media.
With its 50+ locally owned vintage and trend-setting shops, coffeehouses, wine bars, and artisan-inspired restaurants, Retro Row is where the vibrancy and creative spirit of Long Beach lives. The Retro Ramble offers bargains on unique items ranging from furnishings and housewares to accessories and fashion — from vintage to hip contemporary – as well as surf and skate gear, gifts, one-of-a kind tchotchkes, art framing, books, vinyl, CDs and more.
Make a day of it with your favorite four- and two-legged pals. Grab lunch or dinner at any of the pet-friendly eateries along the street, which offers organic Vietnamese, authentic Mexican and Greek, upscale Peruvian, artisan pasta and pub fare as well as handcrafted gourmet coffee and sandwiches and boutique wine & gourmet snacks.
And there’s more to do on the street even after the Retro Ramble festivities wind down. From 5:00pm to 8:00pm, Artistic Edge Art & Framing hosts an opening reception for its latest exhibition: Recent Works by Katie Stubblefield.
