Fiesta Hermosa Today, Tomorrow, & Monday
Need an excuse to head to Hermosa Beach for some fun this weekend? You've got one in the form of the annual Fiesta Hermosa, a nearly four-decades running Memorial Weekend Festival that puts the party right by the shore.
Of course you'll find food and live entertainment, but the focus of Fiesta Hermosa is arts and crafts. "Over 270 artists and crafters are featured, including painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, sculptors, and handicrafters," making it the largest arts and crafts fair in Southern California.
This year a focal point is going green, so organizers urge you to get there on your own two wheels, and have free bike valet as incentive. You can park in their guarded lot at 11th Street and the Strand. "The Hermosa Cyclery will valet park your bike in our FREE lot, and offer air for tires and on-site diagnostic checkups while you enjoy the festival. The lot is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily."
Specifics on the food, two music stages, vendors, getting there, parking, and the greening of the fest are all available online. The event runs Saturday, Sunday, and Monday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
