Butter Aerobics at the Santa Monica Pier Dec. 14

Only in Southern California can you make your own artisanal butter WHILE participating in an aerobics class and enjoying the seaside view… with a whole bunch of strangers doing the same alongside you. On Saturday, December 14, the Santa Monica Pier is hosting PopSoda artists Jimmy Fusil and Mike Wait as they conduct another installment of Feel the Churn: a butter making aerobics event!

The workshop is about an hour long. You will 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 your butter.

DATE: Saturday, December 14.

TIME: Two classes available: 10:30AM and 1:00PM -arrive early to get signed in! Participation is limited to 150 people per class on a first-come basis.

LOCATION: Butter Aerobics is at the West end of the Santa Monica Pier. The mobile bread oven will be set up in Central Plaza.

NOTE: The workshop itself is free. And fresh cream is free to participants thanks to partner Alta Dena Dairy. Jars for shaking are available to purchase onsite for $5 or BYOJ (between 12-18oz, plastic only please).


Feel the Churn-front


Following each of the two classes, churners will be able to spread their butter creation on a slice of fresh bread made on site in Michael O’Malley’s mobile, wood-fired community bread oven, ingesting 150 calories, you know, to neutralize the previous workout.

In addition to the churning calisthenics, artist and master of letterpress CHURCH OF TYPE will be there along with punk rocker turned artisanal jam maker LAURA ANN’S JAMS and our favorite bicycle-powered ice cream maker PEDDLER’S CREAMERY
