The Hollywood Sign is an iconic symbol of the entertainment industry; it embodies glamour, fame, and fortune and is a vital economic engine for our community. Its global recognition attracts close to 50 million visitors annually, stimulating local businesses and creating job opportunities. Just as the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower are pinnacles to New York and Paris, the same is true for the nine letters staggered atop Mount Lee. This year we honor the Hollywood Sign’s 100th anniversary, the economic impact it helped create for the Hollywood community, and the global legacy of creativity and innovation it helped inspire.
This year-long sign centennial celebration will include merchandise collaborations with world-renowned brands, premium content, and one-of-a-kind experiences. To learn more about the history of the Hollywood Sign, visit hollywoodsign.com
