Get ready for your kick-off to summer ~ Memorial Day Weekend, Fiesta Hermosa style!
About The Festival:
Since 1972, HBCCVB has produced Fiesta Hermosa, the “Largest Arts Crafts Fair in Southern California,” featuring approximately 300 artists including painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, sculptors, and handicrafters. The festival takes place every Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) in downtown Hermosa Beach.
Fiesta Hermosa attendees can choose from a wide selection of cuisine in the food court, which also boasts a new clean uniform look to vendors and general seating area. The AB InBev-sponsored Charity Beer Wine Garden offers beer, wine and beeritas with proceeds benefiting a number of local charities. There is live music on two main stages as well as a new satellite stage situated outside Java Man. A full schedule is available under music lovers.
Families have plenty of activities to keep the kids happy. The Kiddie Carnival features a 30 foot slide, mechanical rides and games for kids from 3 to 10 years old. There will be pony rides, a petting zoo, face painters and a new improved Adventure Plex sponsored KIDZone.
Mommies can find solace in their very own tranquil zone at the Fiesta Siesta. Fiesta Siesta is a staffed, secure Mommy zone, where diapers can be changed, babies can be nursed, water can be found, and mommies can freshen up and just relax. Alison, a very grateful mom had this to say about the Fiesta Siesta: “I was able to nurse change my 3 month old. Just wanted to say Thank You! It was very comfortable and much appreciated!”
Free shuttle bus service runs 7:30am to 7:30pm daily from 701 Aviation Blvd., El Segundo. Additional buses have been scheduled to mitigate congestion and parking issues.
Return of the ever-popular world famous free Bike Valet service, compliments of Hermosa Cyclery located just south of the Hermosa Beach Pier. The lot is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily with an on-site diagnostic checkup.
Not only do people flock to Fiesta Hermosa each year for the arts and crafts, but for the Music – which is always of the highest caliber.
There are two stages featuring live music – one at the Main Stage on the Pier and another in the Charity Beer Wine Garden.
The Main Stage features the finest “tribute bands” performing the classic rock of bands such as Heart, Elvis, AC/DC, Steely Dan and David Bowie. Classic rock, 80s, 90s and Pop are showcased in the Charity Beer Wine Garden.
In addition, we have one satellite stage located in the Java Man vicinity.
