The Fiesta Hermosa is known as the “Largest Arts & Crafts Fair in Southern California.” This unique event features approximately 300 artists including painters, ceramicists, jewelers, photographers, sculptors, and handicrafters of many kinds. Fiesta Hermosa is held twice a year on Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekends (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) in beautiful downtown Hermosa Beach.
When you attend Fiesta Hermosa, you not only get to experience a wide variety of art, but also a great selection of music and cuisine. There is live music on two main stages, as well as a smaller satellite stage outside Java Man. These fun spots offer a full schedule of music for everyone. In the food court, a variety of vendors offer a great selection of delicious treats, while the AB InBev-sponsored Charity Beer & Wine Garden offers beer, wine and beeritas, with the proceeds going to benefit a number of local charities.
Along with food, drinks, music and art, families can also enjoy plenty of activities geared towards children. The Kiddie Carnival features a thrilling 30 foot slide, mechanical rides, face painting, pony rides, a petting zoo and games for kids from ages 3 to 10 years. Moms even have their own space! In the tranquil “Mommy Zone,” moms can change diapers, nurse babies, freshen up and even just relax. You can also join in a special service to honor service men and women during the Memorial Celebration May 28 at noon by the pier.
