Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Thank you for your support of our modified Fiesta in the fall, but we are now back to typical operations. We are incorporating some changes to add new fun and tackle new challenges, but the Fiesta that is treasured by many, is back.

Hermosa Beach. Our event spans from Pacific Coast Highway to the south side of the Pier on the beach. 

Parking in Hermosa Beach in the summer is always a challenge. We recommend making a plan before you visit. Visit our parking page for guidance. We heavily suggest you avoid taking a chance with trying to find parking in the area yourself—trust us, you will spend a lot of time driving in traffic looking.

We have a divine selection of local and festival vendors selling food in the Food Fair, adjacent to the Garden, and the Carnival in the Community Center parking lot. But remember that Hermosa has dozens of dining options in the downtown area and we encourage guests to visit their favorite food destinations in Hermosa.

There is a $5 cover charge for the Garden. If you wish to upgrade your experience in the Garden to a covered lounge area with drink service and private restrooms, all access tickets can be purchased here.

Adults 21+ are permitted in the Garden. All other areas of Hermosa are open to all ages!

Dress code? In Hermosa? That’s silly. Hermosa is an inclusive and inviting environment. With that said, we kindly ask you to be appropriate in our family-friendly environment.

Unfortunately, dogs, and pets, are not allowed in the gated Garden area of Fiesta. However, you and your furry friend are free to wander everywhere else.

Sorta. The Beer Garden as we knew it is now simply The Garden. This is because we not only serve local brews up also wine and pre-batched spirits.

Some of our sponsors will have exhibits on Pier Plaza. We also welcome folks to enjoy the outdoor dining on the Plaza during the festival.

Please apply to be a vendor now! Applications are open.

Tickets are paperless and distributed as a QR code in an email that can only be scanned ONCE by the user who is registered and assigned when purchased. Please save your QR code in a safe place to be scanned at the event. You will be wristbanded and the QR code is voided after a single scan on entry. But just in case, we'll email you again a day or two before Fiesta to make sure you have it. Simply show that QR code and we'll scan your phone and wristband you.

NOTE, each QR code is unique and cannot be scanned more than once. This prevents fraud and prevents sneaky people from trying to use a code to enter multiple people. We will also have cameras at all entries to Fiesta so don't even try. If you let a friend use your QR code, you won't be able to use the same code.

To the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau. We are completely independent of the City of Hermosa Beach. We are a nonprofit that serves to promote and benefit the small business community here in Hermosa as well as stimulate tourism.

Yes, but there are limited spaces and the application period ended May 12. You can try again for Labor Day.

The application is only open during a brief time from April 15 - May 1.
