Fiesta Hermosa Returns to the South Bay with a Nightly Beach Concert, Expanded Carnival, and Huge Outdoor Shopping Experience

The Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau bring back the 51+ year tradition of Fiesta Hermosa with some newly continued improvements to enhance the experience.

HERMOSA BEACH, CALIF. (August 15, 2022) — Following a successful Memorial Day Fiesta, the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau announces the return of Labor Day Weekend Fiesta Hermosa for three full days. In its 51st year, the popular festival will take over the city on Saturday, September 3-5 with an expanded footprint, beach concert, beverage garden, and bigger and better carnival at the Community Center.

The event will take place throughout the entire downtown Hermosa Beach area from Pacific Coast Highway to the beach, and will feature family-friendly activities, live music, shopping booths, food and beverage offerings, local retail and vendor promotions, and carnival rides and games. To accommodate all attendees, the event features remote, free shuttle parking thanks to Supervisor Holly Mitchell’s office.

“Fiesta Hermosa is starting to get comfortable in its new upgraded format. We're excited to take feedback from Memorial Day and continue the improvements,” said Jessica Accamando, President & CEO of the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau. “We are upgrading the Carnival offerings with shade, seating, more fun, and even an area for parents to enjoy adult beverages while their kids enjoy the carnival.”

About Fiesta Hermosa

For 51 years, Fiesta has been filling Hermosa’s streets with art, music, and fun. Fiesta de las Artes, as it was originally named, celebrated artisan culture and welcomed visitors from all around to the beach to shop and enjoy the art. For more than a decade, Fiesta has been known as Southern California’s largest beachside arts and craft festival. But we in Hermosa like to think of Fiesta simply as a treasured tradition.
