Hermosa Beach’s Fiesta Hermosa Locale is coming back to the South Bay. It will look a little different this year, but you are not going to want to miss it! The Fiesta Hermosa Locale Festival is a three-day event that brings together the best of the beach. Whether you’re interested in food, art, music, or just enjoying some time with friends, Fiesta Hermosa Locale has something for everyone. Happening September 4 – 6, 2021 in Downtown Hermosa Beach with extended hours from previous years (12-10pm on Saturday and Sunday and 12-8pm on Monday.)
The Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce has been hosting an annual, day-long celebration for the past 50 years. Originally it was called Fiesta de las Artes and celebrated artisan culture. For more than a decade, the Fiesta Hermosa Arts & Crafts Festival has been Southern California’s largest beachside arts and crafts event. This year, Hermosa Beach City Council has introduced a new name Fiesta Hermosa Locale. Taking inspiration from the phrase “shop local”, they decided to call it Fiesta Hermosa Locale in order to highlight that aspect of our city.
