No place does Labor Day quite like Hermosa Beach!
Over the past 47 years, the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau has produced Fiesta Hermosa. 47 years!
It is known as the largest arts & crafts fair in Southern California. The Fiesta book-ends the summer with events Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend.
With rides and music, the 3-day festival is always a fun event for families. Over 300 booths delight with handcrafted art and photographs. Local merchants and craftspeople participate every year. Dozens of booths feature specialty products – the things you never knew you needed until you saw them. If you are looking for an amazing beach photograph or artwork, Fiesta Hermosa is the place to score!
Many guests head straight to the famous Beer & Wine Garden or the Food Court. You’ll enjoy a wide variety of fried fair food, famous kettle corn, fruit kabobs, shaved ice and just about anything imaginable from food trucks and vendors.
The music is always a highlight at Fiesta Hermosa. Listen in at the Main Stage on the Pier, or the more intimate Beer & Wine Garden stage. You can expect all genres of music from punk rock tribute bands to pop singers. South Bay local Jamisen Jarvis performed recently and, not surprisingly, she had quite the crowd cheering her on!
The perfect weather, great music, food, crowds, and the ocean backdrop made this year’s Fiesta Hermosa a success. The community is already looking forward to next year!
