Fiesta Hermosa Memorial Day 2018 in Hermosa Beach

South Bay Events’ full listing of what’s going on for Fiesta Hermosa this Memorial Day Weekend: May 26-28, 2018!

There are few places in the world that kick off summer better than Hermosa Beach, California! The long weekend marks the unofficial start to summer around the South Bay as people from all over Southern California make Fiesta Hermosa a Memorial Day Weekend destination. Fiesta Hermosa’s 3-day festival, May 26-28, is centered in Hermosa Beach and the city swells with fair food, craft booths, a kiddie carnival, and a beer garden. Running daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This is the 46th Annual Fiesta Hermosa, known as Southern California’s largest Arts & Crafts Festival. Approximately 300 artists and crafters will be featured this year, including painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, sculptors, and handicrafters. Of course, many people bypass the booths on Hermosa Avenue and head straight to the Beer & Wine Garden! The proceeds all go to charity, so in case you overdo it there will be a silver lining.

There are two stages with quality tribute bands playing live music throughout the weekend- one at the foot of Hermosa Pier and another in the Charity Beer & Wine Garden. The crowd is always fired up, and dancing is highly encouraged.

The Food Court, just south of the Hermosa Pier, is another of the major highlights of Fiesta Hermosa. Make sure to try the famous Kennel Corn at least once during the weekend.

The Kiddie Carnival has all the traditional fair fun you would expect like a petting zoo, mechanical rides, a 30-foot slide, and face-painting. A relatively new feature that keeps the focus on kids is Fiesta Siesta, a tented area north of Hermosa Avenue along Pier Avenue where parents can nurse or change their little ones.

Parking in the lot is also free.

 

    • Ride your Bike and Park FREE: Keep Hermosa Beach “green” by riding your bike to Fiesta Hermosa, and park in the guarded lot on the sand just south of the Hermosa Beach Pier. The Hermosa Cyclery will valet park your bike in their FREE lot, and offer air for tires. The lot is open from 10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
