One of the greatest aspects of living in Southern California is never having to say goodbye to beautiful, summer-like weather even after Labor Day when most communities throughout the country are bidding adieu to the carefree, sunny days of summer. In Hermosa Beach, the celebration of Labor Day takes on a whole new dimension as the city uses the long weekend to host its annual, long-running festival Fiesta Hermosa.
Billed as the “largest arts and crafts fair in Southern California,” Fiesta Hermosa is one of the most highly anticipated events the community has to offer. Now in its 42nd year running, this year’s Fiesta Hermosa is set to feature more than 300 artists and crafters, including painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, sculptors and handcrafters.
In addition to quite a number of unique craft and art vendors, Hermosa Beach home owners will also be able to take in music performances across two breathtaking stage venues. The Hermosa Beach Pier will be the festival’s main stage. Lovers of classic rock will want to flock to the various performances featuring the nation’s finest tribute bands.
Those nostalgic for acts like Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young will have an opportunity to dance the night away along the main stage. Original acts playing music in the rock, zydeco, country western and rhythm and blues genres will be showcased in the Charity Beer and Wine Garden.
Hermosa Beach Home Owners Come Out for a Good Cause
One of the most popular attractions at the Fiesta Hermosa is the Charity Beer and Wine Garden which features a variety of beer, wine, margaritas and iced libations served by high-profile Hermosa Beach residents. Proceeds gained from alcohol sales will go toward local organizations known for their good works in the community such as Rotary, Kiwanis, HB Education Foundation as well as other civic organizations.
Hermosa Beach home owners looking to fill their bellies with more than refreshing libations will be able to do so at the festival’s eclectic food court. Offering 18 different kinds of ethnic food options, the food court will have delicious choices ranging from barbecued sausages to locally harvested fish tacos. Traditional festival fare such as cotton candy, caramel apples, fresh squeezed lemonade and funnel cakes will also be on hand for festival goers with a sweet tooth.
Keeping in line with the community of Hermosa Beach’s commitment to green initiatives, the buses and generators used in the festival will be fueled with clean-burning biodiesel made from vegetable oil, generously donated by local restaurants. All plates and cutlery will be made from compostable material, and glass and plastic containers will be recycled by the food court vendors.
