Santa Monica Pier Whips up Butter Churning Holiday Action Dec. 14


LOS ANGELES – Only in Southern California can one combine artisanal butter churning, an 80’s fitness class, and the sweeping seaside view of the Santa Monica Pier to create the perfect handmade holiday gift. On Saturday, December 14, the Santa Monica Pier will host PopSoda artists Jimmy Fusil and Mike Wait and several unique vendors for a special holiday experience.

PopSoda will lead hundreds of participants in a delicious holiday workout that unites aerobics with butter making. An hour long workshop will encourage participants to shake and sweat with a 20 minute, 150 calorie workout to DJ spun fitness jams, learn the physics and chemistry of turning cream into butter, and strain, shape, and package the butter to keep or to ready as a gift. It’s the kind of holiday fun your great-great-great grandmother would have enjoyed.

Following each of the two classes, churners will be able to spread their butter creation on a slice of fresh bread made in an on-site oven courtesy of the MOMO project. Participants can complete their special gift by buying a hand-made card made from masters of letter press, Church of Type and complement the final present with a jar of artisanal jam from Laura Ann’s Jams.

In addition to the churning calisthenics and gift making, the Santa Monica Pier will have local online grocery service Good Eggs on hand to offer samples and, keeping with the dairy theme, bicycle-powered ice cream maker Peddler’s Creamery will have ice cream available. In addition, warm refreshments will be offered to participants as they finish off the fun by making their own gift tags.

The Butter Aerobics classes will be held at the West End of the Santa Monica Pier. Participation is limited to 150 people per class on a first-come basis. Butter cream is free to participants thanks to partner Alta Dena Dairy. Jars for butter churning are available to purchase onsite for $5 or BYOJ (between 12-18oz, plastic only please).

DATE: Saturday, December 14.

TIME: Two classes available: 10:30AM and 1:00PM (participants must arrive early to get signed in)

LOCATION: West end of the Santa Monica Pier

Butter Aerobics Holiday Jam is hosted by the Santa Monica Pier and produced by Community Arts Resources, Machine Project and PopSoda.
