The Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau announces the return of Labor Day Weekend Fiesta Hermosa for three full days after a successful Memorial Day Fiesta. On September 3–5, the celebrated festival, now in its 51st year, will engulf the city with an increased footprint, beach concert, beverage garden, and an improved carnival at the Community Center.
From Pacific Coast Highway to the shore, the whole downtown section of Hermosa Beach will be covered by the event, which will include kid-friendly activities, live music, shopping booths, food and beverage choices, promotions from neighborhood shops and vendors, and carnival-style games and rides. Thanks to Supervisor Holly Mitchell’s office, the event offers remote, free shuttle parking for all participants.
“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.”

Fiesta Hermosa invites visitors to carry a mask if they are worried and to kindly refrain from attending if they are experiencing any COVID symptoms because the safety of the South Bay community is still of the highest importance.

Parking & Shuttles
On a typical summer Saturday, finding parking at Hermosa Beach might be difficult, but during Fiesta, parking is scarce. We offer shuttle service to Fiesta and distant parking because of this. We firmly advise all participants to take into account other forms of transportation for Fiesta. Driving down Pier Avenue will be delayed due to road restrictions, and traffic will be diverted into the residential area. If allowed, residential parking is limited to one hour. Again, thanks for taking this into account while making travel plans to Hermosa.
Several ADA parking spaces will be made accessible immediately west of Pier Avenue and Monterey Boulevard. To enter the restricted parking area, you must display an ADA decal. On the parking map, additional spaces will be marked as the event gets closer.
Hermosa Beach is easily accessible by bus.
Route 109 (in red) of Beach Cities Transit, which is run by Redondo Beach, typically travels through Hermosa and drops off passengers close to the downtown area. Park far away and use the elevator for $1 per passenger. Torrance Transit (operated by Torrance) offers line #13 that directly drops in Hermosa Beach.
